Father Dmitry Smirnov is, hands down, one of the most popular priests of Russia. He has a huge following and is very active on television, radio, and his YouTube channel.
He is incredibly witty and often so blunt that he leaves his audience gaping. But not only is he entertaining; he also speaks of the things that too many people today are silent about.
He is especially outspoken in his criticism of LGBT and abortion, and his passionate support for homeschooling. He heads the Russian Church’s Committee for Family, Motherhood, and Children.
This is a clip of him on a top Russian talk show, Sunday Evening with Vladimir Soloviev. Here, he offers a solution to the world’s insatiable materialism.
