Cold Siberia Warms our Home; A Visit from a Siberian Priest

by Steve Ray on August 20, 2011

Today my good friend Gary Michuta, Catholic Defender extraordinaire, came out to visit today with a priest from Magadan Siberia in Russia. He has served there for seventeen years.

Fr. Michael Shields serves in the Church of the Nativity in Siberia. The church is located in Magadan which is known as the “Russian Auschwitz”, the heart of the Soviet Union’s Gulag Archipelago which was graphically described in the works of Alexandr Solzehitsyn.

Hope you enjoy the short video of his time with us — and a little about the area where he is ministering. He has tentatively invited me to come to Russia, namely Siberia, to do a series of talks. I will gladly go!

Thank you Steve and Janet for hosting this wonderful priest and for posting this short video clip about him, his parish and a bit of history of Siberia.
I am so touched by the joy this good priest radiates. Only in the power of the Holy Spirit can he fulfill his ministry, given the vastnes of his parish and the isolation from any brother priest. I feel blessed by him just watching this clip. God is so good. May the good Lord grant Father Shields deepest desire. I will say the Divine Mercy Chaplet for his intention this evening.
Thanks again Steve and God bless you and your family.
