Baptism ( 09.11.2005 )

Today, in the spring Crvenec, in the vicinity of the monastery of the Most Holy Theotokos Eleusa in Veljusa, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica baptized the child of God Stephen from the United States of America.


“…Baptism leads to a new mode of existence, to a rebirth, and consequently to a new hypostasis… This new human hypostasis has all the important characteristics of what we have called true person… The essence of Baptism is God’s adoption of man into sonship, identification of man’s hypostasis with the hypostasis of the Son of God.” (Being as Communion, John D. Zizioulas, Metropolitan of Pergamon)
