Today is the fifth anniversary of Scott Nevin’s tragic suicide. The former monk killed himself just outside of Saint Anthony Greek Orthodox Monastery in Florence, Arizona. Cappy and I extend our deepest sympathy to Scott’s family and friends. May they find comfort in their unimaginable grief.

Sadly, nothing has changed since our editorial on last year’s anniversary. What appears to be a sect within the Greek Orthodox Church, that some characterize as a cult, continues to operate in exactly the same fashion.

Pokrov.org can not change that. However, we strongly suspect that there those among the Greek Orthodox Faithful who have information that, if made public, might just push their Church to remedy the situation.
