The Daily Mail published some lovely photographs of the Solovetsky Monastery earlier in the week: “The enchanted island of mist and snow: Life in the Russian monastery which belongs in a fairytale.” Glory be to God that the monastery is once again a place of prayer—though I am sure that it remained so even under the Soviets. Fr. Pavel Florensky was one of Solovki prison’s many inmates.
