Hierarch’s Divine Liturgy in Star Dojran ( 02.06.2005 )

Today, in the church of Saints Gregory Palamas and Maximus the Confessor in Star Dojran, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica celebrated Divine Liturgy.


“The awareness about God’s goodness, first of all towards us, warms our heart towards Him. For, love is flamed up with love. After you have felt the love of God towards you, you will not be able to remain cold towards Him: your heart by itself will turn to God, full of love and gratitude, and will be warmed to a bright flame. That love does not allow you to forget Him for even a moment. That is the aim. Therefore take these directions with full faith and use your whole labour into fortification of the remembrance of God in your heart and mind. In the remembrance of God lies all the strength. He who is fortified in it with awe and in the warmth of heart, will fulfill all else in fullness as well.” (Saint Theophan the Recluse)
