This is an astounding account, with many photographs to back up the author's testimony. Thank you for posting it. While I am going to take my lead from my priest, I find it difficult to tamp down my growing conviction that, along with Mother Olga of Alaska, Archbishop Dmitri will be glorified in my lifetime. Glory be to God, indeed!

Well, he definitely does not look embalmed.  Embalmed bodies do not hold up that well over time.  One of our parishioners is married to a mortician, and he says modern embalming makes a mess out of bodies with a few months.  They are effective short-term just to get through a viewing and the funeral.

He certainly was a Saint and a genuine down to earth man.
