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…)

With the birth , however, the God-man Christ again restoried the communion and the opportunity for eternal life and human life was given meaning. (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. (more…)

За празникот на Преображението Христово се дозволува масло и риба. (more…)

Abba Pambo prayed to God so that he may not be glorified on earth. But God glorified him so much that people were not able to watch him in his face, because the glory that was visible on his face was so radiant that his face was shining like a lightning, and he was like a king sitting on his throne

Авва Памво се молел на Бога да не го прослави на земјата. Но Бог толку го прославил што луѓето не можеле да го гледаат во лице од славата која отсјајувала од неговото лице, што блескало како молња, а тој бил како цар кој седи на својот престол

Македонски

Христос воскресна од мртвите,

со смртта смртта ја победи,

 и на оние во гробовите,

живот им дари.

The importance of this significant day of Holy Week is that on this day the Lord established the two important mysteries for our salvation: The Holy Eucharist (at the Mystical Supper: “Take, eat, this is my Body which is broken for you for the remission of sins! Drink of it, all of you. This is My Blood, which is poured out for you for the remission of sins! Do this in remembrance of Me”.) and the Jesus Prayer (“…Verily, verily, I say unto you: Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you” (John 16:23). “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it…”, John 14, 13-14).
