Star Dojran ( 20.05.2006 )


Today, when we venerate the memory of the Appearance of the precious Cross in Jerusalem, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica celebrated Divine Liturgy in the church of Saints Maximus the Confessor and Gregory Palamas in Star Dojran.

“We have grasped what genuine obedience is only then when in the absence of our spiritual father, imagining his face, we think he is before us and avoid any conversation, or a word, or food, or sleep, or anything else that to our opinion might displease him. For false disciples rejoice over their teacher’s absence while the true ones consider it a loss” (Saint John of the Ladder).
