He was ordained in by Bishop Nektary of Seattle , spiritual son of St. Nectarius of Optina , the last of the great Optina staretsy. In his ministry, Rose spoke frequently of an "Orthodoxy of the Heart", which he saw as increasingly absent in American ecclesiastical life. He also spoke of the need for warmth and kindness of the spirit, especially when dealing with those with whom one disagreed, an increasing problem in Eastern Orthodoxy in America, and its conflict between so-called "traditionalists" and "modernists".
One can be firm, Rose insisted, without having to compromise basic Christian teachings on lovingkindness , longsuffering , and mercy toward others. Using a hand-cranked printing press at his Geary Boulevard bookstore, Rose founded the bimonthly magazine The Orthodox Word in January ; this periodical is still published on modern presses today.
He translated and printed Fr. Michael Pomazansky's Orthodox Dogmatic Theology , which remains a text for clerical students and laymen alike. Rose translated his books into Russian , and they were circulated widely as samizdat within the Soviet Union , although they were not formally published until after the fall of the Communist regime. He was also one of the first American Eastern Orthodox Christians to translate major works of several church fathers into English. Although most of Rose's works were widely received within the Orthodox community, a few raised controversy.
The most notable of these was The Soul After Death , which describes certain " aerial toll houses " described by various Church Fathers and saints. According to this teaching, every human soul must pass through a series of these stations after death as part of their initial judgment by God , where they will be accused of specific sins and possibly condemned to hell.
Some modern Orthodox theologians, including Archbishop Lazar Puhalo, Stanley Harakas and Alexandros Kalomiros among others, have claimed that certain ideas in Rose's book are heretical , and that many of the Church Fathers have been misinterpreted or misquoted to support it.
A recent publication called, The Departure of the Soul, published by St. Though continuing to vehemently oppose Rose's teaching on this subject, Puhalo indicated that he considered Rose to be a "true ascetic", and that he respected the sincerity of Seraphim's monastic life and intentions. He had a great ascetic life. He had enormous struggles, enormous inner struggles, and he struggled with them in really great asceticism. It really was a great ascetic struggle, and there should be a reverence and a respect for that.
And that is a great virtue and a great reason to have a certain reverence for Father Seraphim. Shenlong's Relentless Assault. Bane of the Trapped.

When invited to imagine what his relationship with Dr. I don't have, for whatever psychological reasons, any friends at all who are blind--actually I never have had--any relationships with blind people since I moved out of the Arkansas School for the Blind. I had several black friends, and it always made me sad that these friends ended up studying or writing about black culture or welfare for black people.
I, for whatever psychological reasons, wanted to be done with the business of blindness from the very beginning. Mehta recalled that Dr. That enmity might have served as a source of inspiration to continue his advocacy for blind people, but this was not his reaction. After this experience Mehta said that he moved to England and washed his hands of any further involvement with the blindness community. Despite this decision he started further correspondence with Dr.
Mehta could not clearly recall what prompted his resumption of this correspondence, but he surmised that it was probably either to solicit career advice about his ambition to be a writer or to grumble about his dissatisfaction while at Harvard, which seemed to him "like an intellectual version of Hollywood.
In concluding his reflections on Dr. Passages from Mehta's book The Stolen Light make it clear that he struggled to reconcile himself to his blindness during his college years. He resisted the requests of college administrators to use a cane and admit his turmoil about matters as simple as disclosing his need for assistance or directions to the bathroom while out with friends or dates.
Nevertheless he did write of using Braille and readers and of taking advantage of leaders in the blindness community like Dr. Wondering if his perspective on blindness had evolved over the years, we questioned him indirectly about his current attitudes toward his blindness.

Mehta's remarkable story of indefatigable energy and determination, keep his book alive. He can sometimes write with an acuteness that almost makes sight superfluous: ''I was left on the sidelines, breathing in heavy, orangey scent emanating from a girl who had just seated herself nearby and started putting on nail polish.
Soon the scent of the nail polish overpowered every other smell around me, and I was a child again, in a shop with my mother, with jars upon jars of sweets, waiting my turn for a bag of orange sweets.
