On the Feastday of St. Mardarije
Tuesday, December 12, 2017

That borders do not exist for Christ’s Church and His Saints has been and continues to be confirmed through the numerous examples during the two thousand year history of the Church.

It will be confirmed until the end of the world and time.

One of the blessed examples of the Lord’s limitless love and the breadth of the Orthodox Church, is this year’s celebration of the newly revealed St. Mardarije of Serbia, Ljesan-Libertyville, All-America and All-Orthodox.

The name and memory of the Saint, the new apostle of the Church of Christ, was celebrated this year from the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Coastlands, from Kornet the town of Ljsan, where he was born, to Studenica Monastery where he was tonsured, to his monastery of St. Sava in Libertyville where his incorrupt relics shine with the spirit of living faith. His name was celebrated from the king’s city of Cetinje to the emperor’s city of Petersburg, to the distant Australia and throughout South and Central America and Canada, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldavia, Serbia.
