Letter to Bishop Nicholas (Ziorov)


San Francisco

4/16 May 93


Your Grace and most merciful Archpastor,


I feel very guilty before you for not until now answering the kind letter you sent upon your arrival in Chicago. I thank you for wishing to send me the complete translations of the catechism of Your Church (perhaps the Catechism of Archbishop Platon?) so that I may compare it against my manuscript, as I do not wish ever to publish anything that would not have the imprint of the Orthodoxy of the ancient church, i.e. that which is faithful to the Churchıs teaching to the smallest detail.


Your Grace, please accept my expressions of profound respect and consideration.


Asking for your prayers, I remain the lowest servant of Your Grace,


Carl E. G. Oppen
