Sunday of Saint Mary of Egypt in Hamzali ( 17.04.2005 )
Today, in the male monastery of Saints Clement and Nahum of Ohrid in Hamzali, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica celebrated Divine Liturgy together with his hieromonks and priests. Before the Liturgy, His Eminence tonsured brother Stojan a reader. The present faithful in the monastery partook of the Holy Mysteries of Christ.
Abba Poemen would say:
“When a man abhors himself before God and does not attach much importance to himself and so restrains his desires—that is a weapon of his soul.” (from the Gerontikon)
