Late in the evening of 19 November 2009 the unknown in the mask and with a gun in his hand entered the Church of Apostle Thomas on Kantemirovskaya street and fired several shots at the priest Daniil Sysoev, coming out to meet him from the altar. That same night, 35-year-old father Daniel died in intensive care.

The twentieth of November will be eight years since the tragic death of a tireless missionary of the Russian Church. A memorial services last evening were held in the Church of the Apostle Thomas. Monday on the grave of the priest at Kuntsevo cemetery a memorial service was held. As in previous years, the believers gather together to pray and remember mentor.

«It is often said, adds Stenyaev, that the priest is a man not for himself but for other people. Therefore, he believed that anyone who turns to him with some question he should devote as much time and perceive it as a kind of important assignment from God, since the Lord sent him to this man. And really, it could come some eminent scholar, or just a hippie from the street, but he did not see the difference between people, in communication with each devoted it entirely to this dialogue.»

Priest Georgy Maksimov — then still Yury Maximov spoke with father Daniel, in the last ten years of his life, were both engaged in teaching. Maksimov says that the desire to become a priest came to father Daniel as a child, when he experienced clinical death and «saw the angel, who returned his soul back to the body.» After that, he couldn’t imagine himself with someone else. And yet, says Maksimov, during these ten years he «heard many times from father Daniel that he would die as a Martyr».

«All those involved are already dead»

The Investigative Committee in March 2010 announced that the murder of the priest is revealed. The motive of his professional career.

The Moscow Patriarchate urged to find the organizers of the crime and to reveal the whole criminal chain without something to talk about full disclosure of the murder prematurely. However, since that time no new data does not appear.

The widow of a priest Julia Sysoeva sure it’s not closed, but only suspended. «It can open at any time when newly discovered circumstances. If somewhere something will learn, will emerge new information about the customers of this business, it will be resumed,» — said Sysoev. A review of the investigation on the matter to RIA Novosti does not yet have.

«Fire» the way of the missionary: the Wahhabis could not prevent the case of father Daniil Sysoev© Nativity Svyato-pafnutiev Borovsky Monastiraki from the murder scene of the famous priest Daniil sysoevich the human rights center of world Russian people’s Council (WRPC) religious expert Roman Silantyev believes that all involved in the crime have already been eliminated: «most Likely, the executor was destroyed. But usually customers do not last long. Thank God, the terrorists, the life expectancy is very short, so probably those who are involved already dead.»

According to Silantyev, on the murder of father Daniel there is a «clear motive». «He was threatened. And those who threatened him, killed him. And not him alone. Killed many and imams, and priests — almost all of them had received threats from the Wahhabis. This is the work of the Wahhabis».

It is worth noting that in December 2009 Russia banned terrorist organization «Caucasus Emirate» issued a statement that the priest Daniil Sysoyev killed her follower.

«He burned it»: the legacy of missionary

«People are interested in it in the first place God and truth, that is what father Daniel wanted to convey to them — said Sysoev. — He is very accessible, simple and clear answers to those questions that people usually ask themselves in the shower. It really is the living word, he burned it, not just formally performed his duties. And people always feel the falsehood and the truth.»

The Deputy head of the Synodal missionary Department of the hegumen Serapion (Mitko) adds that Daniil Sysoev left a significant theological legacy, which, although is in high demand by readers, but is still not fully studied and is waiting to be explored. Sometimes, however, this study is «clearly polemical», is the opposite. But it is a feature of the «missionarea» theology: there are many questions with great candor and uncompromising. Therefore, the perception of the heritage of his father Daniel in different people can be different.

As noted in the missionary Department, the deceased priest were very many students who joined together in some Christian societies. Their interpretation, however, what, perhaps, they all agree, is the high level of activity, which gives them the opportunity to go preaching to anyone in any part of the world.

«Martyrdom of the father of Daniel, concludes the Abbot Serapion, — became a conclusion of his Ministry. Not only finished in terms of historical time but also in terms of perfection attainment. Like the apostles, almost all of whom were martyrs, father Daniel passed his Ministry which, regardless of the person, selflessly and with great faith. And this faith, as the faith of the martyrs of the first centuries of Christianity, brought him the crown of martyrdom».
