One of Fr. Alexander's spiritual children writes: "Batyushka has gone to a better world, where, we hope, he will receive from the Lord his just reward for all the labours and sufferings he endured during his earthly life, for the humility, lack of spite and avarice for which he was always distinguished, for that light which he gave to people, and for his martyric end.

"He has left us, and we remain. There is no doubt that this was a planned murder. Who will be the next victim? And for how long will we continue to sleep? O Lord, enlighten and have mercy on us all!"
