Divine Liturgy ( 18.05.2006 )
Today, on the day of the holy Great-martyr Irene, in the chapel of Saints Gregory Palamas and Joseph the Spilaioti, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica celebrated Divine Liturgy.
“Powerful help in the spiritual struggle is given us by the Jesus prayer, which since the beginning of Christianity has followed them who seek God. He who prays incessantly and wholeheartedly turns to Christ, ‘Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner, and grant me Your grace that transforms the being’. He lives in the permanent presence of God, opens his inner self to Him and comes to know God’s almighty help” (Saint John of Kronstadt).
