Divine Liturgy in Star Dojran ( 28.06.2005 )
Today, in the church dedicated to Saint Gregory Palamas and Saint Maximus the Confessor in Star Dojran, Divine Liturgy was celebrated by Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica.
Prayer is the means by which we are united very closely with God. By “prayer”, we do not mean just praying now and then in front of icons, but along with this – which we must do – a monk uses seven words of prayer, which he says when he works, when he eats, when he sits, and when he occupies himself with anything whatsoever, without stopping! We say these words with the mouth, with the nous, or with the heart: “LORD JESUS CHRIST, HAVE MERCY OF ME.”
(Elder Ephraim of Philotheou)
