The Greek-Catholic community of the Prjashiv Eparchy, incorporated in the state of Czechoslovakia after World War II, headed by Bishop Gojdich, was forced to become part of the Russian Orthodox Church in 1948 when the Communists came to power. The regime denied the Greek Catholic Church the right to exist, and Bishop Gojdich was tried for high treason and given a life sentence. The bishop died in the Leopoldov prison in 1960.

This booklet is important especially as we move further away in time from the Communist times in Eastern Europe. It is very affordable and a good resource for religious education for teenagers and adults.

thank you for printing this important and blessed booklet...to be able to know about this holy man and those who stood their ground when faced with political oppression and misuse of religion to control the minds of a people is very important as we ourselves face a great challenge.
