    Re: Servant of God Walter Ciszek SJ. I am delighted to learn of this. I used to be an acolyte for Father Ciszek,esp.when he celebrated in the Byzantine Rite. I learned most of my Church Slavonic from him. I was later able to use the knowledge of this language in preparation of a restored text of the rarely used Byzantine Liturgy of St. James, which influenced the Scottish Episcopal Church and the Non-Jurorsin the 18th century. Fr. Walter himself used one of my initial drafts. He was a perfect gentlemen,highly revered confessor, and even displayed some supernatural “phenomenon”,while he was alive. A miracle of his is somewhere in the investigation process.
