Indeed, I would think that getting gunned down for preaching against Islam and telling your flock not to marry outside the faith would constitute being a martyr...is anything being done to look into this formally?

I know the Russian priest they had in the news clip referred to him as a martyr....pretty much everyone I know is doing it already.

Memory eternal!

DavidBryan: apparently the Russian authorities are looking into the murder.  The local Council of Muftis also condemned it.  

Everyone: was Fr. Daniil married or a monk?  If he was married and especially if he had children, perhaps somebody is setting up a fund to help them with expenses?  Could anybody find this out?

He had a wife and three daughters, I'm not sure if a fund is being set up.

Thank you for the information, Ukiemeister.

Is anybody here in a position to find out if the Moscow Patriarchate is setting up a fund for Fr. Daniil's wife and children?  If not, I will attempt to do so, but I'm a layperson with no real connections. 

Thanks!

Confessor and Martyr. Courtesy of Patriarch Kirill.

http://02varvara.wordpress.com/2009/11/20/patriarch-kirill-calls-fr-daniil-sysoev-a-confessor-and-martyr-of-the-faith/

“Fr Daniil was widely known to Orthodox Christians, not only in the capital, but, also, in many other dioceses. His zealous work in preaching the word of God, his care in involving people in the faith of Christ, and his care for the spiritual needs of our youth earned him the respect of both fellow pastors and the public. The intense focus on mission of Fr Daniil inspired many, and he left a bright, emotional, and profound image of faith and hope in the Lord in the minds of people looking for a road to the Church. The Lord called to Himself His faithful servant and granted him the opportunity to be a confessor of the faith and a martyr in the cause of evangelical preaching."

And his wife...http://incendiarious.wordpress.com/2009/11/23/on-my-husbands-death-julia-sysoyeva/

Father Daniel foresaw his death even a few years before what has happened.

He always wanted to be worthy of a martyr’s crown and the Lord has given him such a crown. Those who shot at him wanted to spit yet another time into the face of the Church, as they once spit in the face of Christ, but they have not obtained their desire as it is impossible to spit in the face of the Church. Father Daniel went to his own Golgotha right in the church, which he had been building and to which he had been giving all time and energy. He was killed like an ancient prophet, that is, between the altar and the sanctuary, and he was really worthy of being called a martyr.

He died for Christ, Whom he served with all his strength.

He often told me that he was afraid that he would not manage to do the things he wanted, very many things. He hurried. Humanly speaking, he had some extremes and exaggerations, he stumbled and made mistakes, but he did not make mistakes in the main thing; his life was completely dedicated to HIM.

I didn’t understand why he hurried. For the final three years he devoted himself to ministry without days off or vacation. I grumbled; I desired, at least sometimes, simple happiness: that my husband and my kids father would be with me and them But a different path had been prepared for him.

He would say that he would be killed. I asked him who would take care of us-me and three kids-when he would leave. He answered that he would leave us in good hands. “I will give you to the Mother of God, she will take care of you.”

Those words were forgotten until now. He told me which vestments to bury him in. I joked at the time that we should not talk about that as it is not known who will be burying whom. He said that I would be burying him. One day funerals were brought up in a conversation. I do not remember the whole conversation but I said that I had never been at a funeral service for a priest. And he told me not to worry, that I would be at his.

Now, many words are remembered and their meaning has been found. Now, my perplexity has been resolved and my incomprehension has been dispersed.

<snip>
I’m not in the least broken. He is supporting me; I feel that he is near. During this time we have told each other many tender words, more than we said throughout our whole life. Only now I understand how strongly we loved each other.

The 40th day after Fr. Daniel’s repose (December 29) falls on the day before his name’s day and the feast day of the future church, Prophet Daniel: December 30. According to an elders prophecy, the church would be built but Fr. Daniel would not serve in it. The second has already been fulfilled.

“A man gets killed when he is feared, when his spiritual superiority is feared. Father Daniel was threatened 14 times. And even on the day of his murder, he received a threatening call demanding that he must stop preaching among the Muslims. After his assassination many Muslims were baptized, as priests of other Churches have told me. The murder produced the opposite effect,”... Read more

Hopefully, they canonize him. IN that case, I will pray to him. Holy Hieromartyr Daniel pray to God for us!
