Ένας Αυτόχθονας Αμερικανός ιερέας που αγίασε (+1865)

Ο ιεραπόστολος των Εσκιμώων Γιούπικ

26 Ιουλίου

Ό Άγιος Ιάκωβος Νετσβέτωφ της Αλάσκας γεννήθηκε από πατέρα Ρώσο και Άλεούτια μητέρα στή νήσο Atka της Αλάσκας τό 1802. Ολοκλήρωσε τις σπουδές του στήν ιερατική σχολή του Ιρκούτσκ στή Σιβηρία. Μετά τή χειροτονία του σε πρεσβύτερο, επέστρεψε στήν Αλάσκα, οπού επί τριάντα πέντε χρόνια άσκησε τά ποιμαντικά του καθήκοντα μεταξύ των αυτοχθόνων, υπό συνθήκες διαβιώσεως ιδιαιτέρως επισφαλείς, συνεχίζοντας ετσι τό έργο του άγιου Γερμανού [13 Δεκ.].

Υπήρξε ό δεύτερος Όρθόδοξος ιερέας πού τόλμησε να εισδύσει στις περιοχές αύτές, μετά τον Άγιο ίερομάρτυρα Ίουβενάλιο. Κι ενώ γενικά συναντούσε καλή υποδοχή και γρήγορα προσηλύτιζε τούς αυτόχθονες στήν αληθινή πίστη, πολλές φορές άντιμετώπιζε την έντονη άντίθεση των σαμάνων μάγων. Δεν ηρκείτο μόνο Continue reading “Άγιος Ιάκωβος Νετσβέτωφ της Αλάσκας (+1865) – Ένας Αυτόχθονας Αμερικανός ιερέας που αγίασε (+1865) – Ο ιεραπόστολος των Εσκιμώων Γιούπικ – 26 Ιουλίου”
