Berovo ( 14.05.2005 )
In the monastery of the Most Holy Theotokos in Berovo, today Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica celebrated Divine Liturgy. The faithful at the Liturgy communicated of the Holy Mysteries of Christ.
“He who has humbled his conscience through subordination to his spiritual father to the greatest extent, awaits his death everyday as a dream, or better as life; and he fears not, for he knows for certain that not he, but his spiritual father will be called to give an account for him at the hour of his departure from this world.”
“What real obedience is we have come to know only if with our spiritual father being absent, imagining him, we think he is before us and avoid any conversation, or a word, or food, or a dream, or anything else that to our opinion could displease him. False disciples rejoice in the absence of their teacher, while the genuine ones consider this a loss.” (
