Today (28. November) is the beginning of the fast, let it be blessed and easy. This fast is dedicated for our preparation and in glory and memory of the incarnation of our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ. For our salvation He was incarnated, accepted a body and became Man in order to raise and save all human nature. God became Man so that man could become god by grace. This designation was given to man in heaven by God and in addition he was supposed to obey only one commandment – to restrain himself, i.e. to fast. If fasting was necessary to man in heaven in order to fulfill his designation, then it is much more needed here on this earth of torment and banishment. (more…)

Денес (28 Ноември)почнува постот, нека ни е благословен и лесен. Овој пост е посветен за подготовка и во чест и спомен на раѓањето во тело на Спасителот и Господ наш Исус Христос. Кој заради нашето спасение се воплоти, прими тело и стана Човек за да ја подигне и спаси сета човекова природа. Бог стана Човек за да човекот стане бог по благодат. Оваа зададеност Бог му ја дај на човекот уште во рајот за што требал да исполни само една заповед да се воздржува, т.е. да пости. Ако постот му бил потребен на човекот во рајот за да дојде до целта тогаш уште повеќе во ова земја на прогонство и маки.

„Цел на нашиот живот е да биднеме совршени и свети. Да се покажеме чеда Божји и наследници на Царството Небесно. Но, да внимаваме, поради овој живот да не бидеме лишени од идниот. Да не се случи, поради животните грижи и немирот да ја занемариме целта на нашиот живот.“

Св. Нектариј

  

Времето во кое се родил и живеел, Свети Нектариј е така наречен мрачен период на православието, по распадот на славното православно ромејско царство и многувековното инославно турско ропство од една страна  и свесно наметнатото духовно ропство од западната стерилна схоластичка теолошка мисла од друга. Во својот  живот ги поминува трите степени од духовниот живот: очистувањето на срцето, просветлувањето на умот и обожувањето на севкупната личност, ги поминува и трите степени во богомислието; практичната или природната, теоријата или созерцателната и чистата теологија. Со тоа Светителот ја актуелизира полнотата на крштенската благодат во него и божествените енергии и нам ни ги пренесува преку неговите молитви и дела, а неговото слово преобразено и очистено во неговото срце и самото добива сила, станува слово со власт и Божјо Слово – Богословие.

“The goal in our life is to be perfect and sanctified. It is to show that we are the children of God and the inheritors of the Heavenly Kingdom. But we should be careful not to be deprived from the next life because of our present one. It should not happen that as a result of our earthly care and restlessness we neglect the goal in our life.”

                                                                             Saint Nektarios

The time Saint Nektarios was born and lived in is a so called dark age of Orthodoxy. It is the period after the disintegration of the glorious Orthodox Roman Empire and the many-century long heterodox Turkish slavery on the one hand and the deliberately imposed spiritual slavery from the western sterile scholastic theologian thought on the other hand. During his life he went through the three levels of spiritual life: purifying the heart, enlightening the mind and sanctifying the whole personality, he went through the three levels of contemplation of God; the practical or the natural, the theoretic or contemplative and pure theology. The Saint actualized the fullness of the baptizing grace inside him and the divine energies, transferring them to us through his prayers and deeds, while his word itself, transformed and purified in his heart, gained strength and became a word with power and God’s Word – Theology.
