People often challenge why Tsar and his family are saints? If you read this book, you will begin to understand - the why; the sacrifice for their nation, its people, the deprivation, and their horrific execution for simply being who they were . . . not only royals but Orthodox Christians slaughtered by demonic and atheistic forces. This is a first-hand account by their priest. No greater earthly testimony to their sainthood exists. The family deserves our prayers and we need their intercessions.
