CHRIST IS RISEN! ( 02.05.2005 )
Today, to the glory of Christ’s Resurrection, in the Veljusa monastery of the Most Holy Theotokos Eleusa Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica celebrated Divine Liturgy. In the course of the Liturgy the sub-deacon Goran Georgiev was ordained deacon.
“From the Holy day of Resurrection of Christ, our God, until the following week, throughout the whole seven days, the faithful should attend services in the holy churches, chanting psalms, hymns and religious songs, rejoicing in Christ and celebrating, listening carefully at that to the reading of the Divine Scriptures and communicating of the Holy Mysteries. For only in this wise we shall rise and ascend together with Christ… (66. Canon of the Holy Apostles, Sixth Ecumenical Council)
