By Archimandrite Nektarios Serfes
This is a humbled dedication and commemoration of the 100th birthday of His Imperial Highness Alexis Nicholaivich Sovereign Heir Tsarevich Grand Duke of Russia was born on 30 July 1904, and this year marks his one-hundredth Birthday on 30 July 2004, and he weight 8Ibs.
The birth of Tsarevich Alexis was a great blessing through the prayers of St. Seraphim of Sarov.
As we know the Tsarevich Alexis was martyred with his beloved family in Ekaterinburg, Russia on July 17, 1918, and let us remember to pray to him, and ask his loving intercessions for all children.
I have earlier written the following prayer, join with me humbly in this prayer:
Out of the depth of my heart I cried unto Thee, O Lord,
A Prayer On Behalf Of The Child-Martyr Crown Prince Alexis of Russia
Who came into the World to save us,
Be ever merciful until us all,
Look at us not in judgment,
At the killing and persecution of Thy admirable and innocent Child-Martyr Alexis,
Who truly agonized in illness, and who love all and cared for all,
Who was pure, and lifted up his sweet innocent soul to Thee in prayer,
Forgive us O Lord our true God, who has been patient with all our sins, to grant merciful peace to us all, and to those who love Thee watch over us!
Rejoice, O Child-Martyr Tsarevich Alexis, we who cry unto you!
Pray for us poor sinners Child-Martyr Tsarevich Alexis, and to pray for all children. Amen.
Holy Child-Martyr Tsarevich Alexis
Pray Unto God For Us!
