Rasputin:
I was 20 when the vision came. We peasants get them all the time. The Virgin comes and tells them when to sell their sheep if they want to make a profit. She told me to become a pilgrim. So I started to walk. I waited for her to tell me when to stop, but she didn't. I walked 2000 miles, and when I got to Greece, I couldn't walk any longer. So I stopped. I spent 2 years in a monastery, and then I walked home again. Sometimes people say to me, "what do I need to become a starets?" and I say, "good feet."

Father Gregory...
...do you have visions?
Sometimes.
Why does God send them to you?
God knows. I don't.
I used to be a Lutheran.
They take God very seriously.
I take Him as
He comes, Matushka.
When it pleases Him, He uses me.
You mean He actually appears?
You see Him?
What's a vision like?
Sometimes it's voices.
Other times, I'm not sure
what I see.
I know exactly what you mean.
It happens to me sometimes
when I pray...
...especially late at night.
The candles flicker
and it's dark...
...and out of the corner
of my eye, I think I see...
