Помоћ Кола српских сестара за српске ученике на Косову

Сва деца из српског села Кузмин, код Косова Поља, добила су новчану помоћ коју је сакупило Коло српских сестара из Сан Франциска. 

Поклон за осамдесеторо деце уручио је епископ западно-амерички Максим који је посетио Основну школу "Аца Маровић" и ово изоловано место у албанском окружењу.

"Драга децо, драги учитељи, желим да вам пренесем поздраве ваших вршњака из Сан Франциска и Америке. Они вам поручују, да тамо, у далеком свету, неко мисли на вас и жели да вам помогне у вашем селу, у вашем месту", рекао је владика Максим који је разговарио са децом.

Основна школа у Кузмину ради у тешким и неодговарајућим условима, а настава се одвија од првог до четвртог разреда. Њени ђаци су владики поклонили своје цртеже уместо разгледница за своје вршњаке у Америци.

"Заиста смо почаствовани овом посетом, био је ово прави празник за децу. Нама ретко ко долази, некако смо овде одвојени од света, али има добрих људи и хвала им свима", рекла је учитељица Сузана Андрић.

Коло српских сестара из Сан Франциска и Епархија западно-америчка годинама помажу српској деци у селима Косова и Метохије. У Кузмину живи око сто српских породица, приметан је тренд исељавања, али се земља и куће не продају Албанцима.

Vlade Divac

A first round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1989 NBA draft, Vlade Divac went on to become one of the first European players to have an impact on the NBA.

In 1985, Vlade Divac was one of 15 young boys from Slovenia, Bosna, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and Macedonia that won the gold medal in the University Games. This would prove to be a basketball team that is considered among the best ever assembled. They went on to win a gold medal at the European Junior Championships in 1986, a gold medal at the FIB A World Junior Championships in Bormio, Italy in 1987 (defeating Team USA twice in that tournament), and a silver medal representing Yugoslavia at the 1988 Olympics.

The Church at Prayer

by Archimandrite Aimilianos of Simonopetra

Publisher’s note

Many readers of the addresses of Elder Aimilianos, which have been published in the five-volume series, rchimandrite Aimilianos, Spiritual Instructions and Discourses (Ormylia, 1998-2003), have frequently expressed the wish for an abridged and more accessible form of his teaching. In response, we are happy to inaugurate a new series of publications incorporating key texts from the above-mentioned collection. Other considerations have also contributed o this new project, such as the selection of specific texts which address important, contemporary questions; the need for a smaller, more reader-friendly publication format; and the necessity for editing certain passages in need of clarification, without however altering their basic meaning.

Above all, the works collected in this volume reflect the importance which the Elder consistently attached to prayer, spirituality, community life, worship, and liturgy. Thus the experientially based works "On Prayer", and "The Prayer of the Holy Mountain", which deal primarily with the Prayer of the Heart, appear first, followed by the summary addresses on "The Divine Liturgy", and "Our Church Attendance". These are in turn followed by the more socially oriented discourses on "Our Relations with Our Neighbor", and "Marriage: The Great Sacrament". Finally, the present volume closes with the sermons on "Spiritual Reading" and "The Spiritual Life", which in a simple and yet compelling manner set forth the conditions for "ascending to heaven on the wings of the Spirit".

It is our hope that The Church at Prayer will meet the purpose for which it is issued and will serve as a ready aid and support for those who desire God and eternal life in Him.
