Of course, you’d have to be living under a rock not to know that F V Emelianenko, eight-time MMA champ, is a big-time Orthodox Christian. Here, Fyodor Vladimirovich is holding one of our most sacred wonderworking images, the Kursk-Root Icon. This is a rare blessing and honour… it speaks of the high regard that he’s held in higher Church circles. Not all Christians are intellectuals or scholars… in fact, most of us aren’t. Reading won’t get you the Kingdom… simple humility will. Know yourself and act accordingly. Do the good that’s set in front of you… we’re Christians; that’s what we do!
