About the life

In the First world war he was seriously wounded, one surgeon. Realizing that the chance of survival is almost there, he vowed that if they die, you will serve God. And survived. Keeping the word, he became the village priest. During the Second world war he joined the partisans and, as the most competent, became chief of staff of the partisan detachment, but because he was wounded and sick, he had to recall his first profession.

At a reception in the Kremlin, he was presented to Stalin, who told his story. Stalin asked what he will do after the war. He replied that he would return to his parish. Stalin, apparently, wanted to pay his medical activities and he said, «Oh, what the surgeon we have lost in your face!». «What the pastor lost Church in your face Stalin!» — was the answer.
