Summary/Abstract: The article evokes Archbishop Justinian Chira who was highly regarded since he was abbot of the Rohia monastery, as a man with a holy life. Many people saw him as a gentle, balanced, good, wise, loving man, a devoted servant of God and of His Church, living an austere life discretely and naturally. He had an internal discipline that worked flawlessly and it was seen in his words and behavior. Bishop Justinian was a true bibliophile. He was a book lover and very eager to advise monks to read and educate, reminding us of the aura and preoccupations of the first monks.
