In memory of Archimandrite Placide Deseille
This text is a tribute to Archimandrite Placide Deseille, on the occasion of 1 year since his passing away in January 2019. This occasion was commemorated by many who knew him. Fr. Placide had and still has an undeniable spiritual and theological authority for the rigor and firmness of his writings of patristic theology and spirituality, for the authenticity and humility of his monastic life, for all evangelical virtues embraced and fully assumed in the practice of athonite monasticism, in Orthodox spirit and French as language of expression.
