from the Hierarch’s Liturgy on Great Thursday in Strumica ( 28.04.2005 )







In the Strumica church of the Holy Fifteen Hieromartyrs of Tiberiopolis, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica celebrated the Divine Liturgy of St Basil.











Remember, O Lord, the priesthood, the diaconate in Christ, and every order of clergy, and put not to confusion any one of us who stand about Thy holy altar. Visit us with Thy loving kindness, O Lord, manifest Thyself unto us through Thy rich compassions. Vouchsafe unto us seasonable and healthful weather. Send gentle showers upon the earth unto fruitfulness. Bless the crown of Thy years with goodness. Makest schisms to cease in the Church. Quench the raging of hostile nations, speedily destroy, by the power of Thy Holy Spirit uprisings of heresies, receive us all into Thy Kingdom, showing us to be sons of the light and sons of the day, and grant unto us Thy peace and love, O Lord our God, for all things hast thou given

unto us. (from the Liturgy of Saint Basil the Great)
