At Hilandar the feast day of Saint Simeon the Myrrh-Gusher was solemnly celebrated at Hilandar coincides with marking the nine centuries of his birth. Along with the feast of The Entry of the Most Holy Theotokos into the Temple, Saint Sava and icon of the Three-Handed Theotokos, the feast of Saint Simeon is the part of four slavas (Patron Saint-days) which the Hilandar brotherhood celebrates.

In the period that followed the 2004 fire, the monastery could not celebrate more solemnly this feast and receive a large number of guests.

A great joy for the Hilandar family represented the arrival of His Grace Bishop Varnava of Viksin and Pavlov from Russia. Despite the bad weather, a lot of guests and pilgrims gathered.

Bishop Varnava celebrated the Divine Liturgy with the concelebration of Archimandrite Metodije, Abbot of the Hilandar monastery; hieromonks and hierodeacons from other monasteries on Mount Athos, as well as priests from Russia and Serbia.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
