Orthodox Missionary Priest, 110 years old and still evangelizing



Read more about Father Elias Wen and the 75th anniversary of his ordination to the Holy Priesthood here.

May God grant our good Father peace, health, salvation, and many more years. And, especially, to see the renewal of Orthodoxy in China, something which must be very dear to his heart, as he is Chinese and was a missionary in China for many years, serving under St. John Maximovitch in Shanghai and San Francisco.

I just ran into an article the other day about a Catholic Priest about the same age, he is one of Germany's last eight surviving World War I veterns.
