Servant of God Father Antony Chervinski 1881—1938

Anton Karlovich Chervinski was born on October 8th 1881, in the town of Bilgoray (now in Poland). He was graduated from the minor seminary and the Theological seminary in Saratov, then in the St. Petersburg Theological Academy, and he earned the degree of Master of Theology. He was ordained as priest on April 2nd 1905. Since 1906 he was the vicar of the cathedral in Saratov and the personal secretary to the Bishop of Tiraspol, Joseph Kessler, and since September 1911 he became the parish administrator in Vladikavkaz. After the revolution Fr. Antony continued to serve in his parish, as well as he helped many other parishes, which were deprived of priests. In 1936 he was arrested in Vladikavkaz under a false charge. In 1937 he was condemned to death and was shot on 26th January 1938. The parishioners cherished the fame of his sanctity.

Fr. Antony was a good pastor and a good preacher. He was concerned for the spiritual life of his parishioners and for the upbringing of the orphans. The parishioners remember, that he taught in his sermons how to accept suffering patiently, how to bear one’s cross in order to unite oneself to Christ, who founded the Catholic Church so that she could lead people on the path of salvation. When he was arrested he acknowledged acceptance of persecution and martyrdom for the faith.

“Remember them who have ruled over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follows, considering the end of their conversation.”
(Heb. 13:7)

The prayer for the beatification of the Servant of God Fr. Antony Chervinski

O God Almighty, Your Son suffered on the Cross and died for the salvation of people.
Imitating Him, Your Servant father Antony Chervinski loved You from the bottom of his heart, served You faithfully during the persecutions and devoted his life to the Church. Make him known in the assembly of Your blessed, so that the example of his faithfulness and love would shine before the whole world. I pray to You through his intercession hear my request ………through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The prayer has to be used in private, as well as in public, out of the Holy Mass.
