Montenegrin Church Erases St. Sava And Orthodox New Year From Calendar

admin | 11 January 2014

State-owned daily “Pobjeda” printed and distributed on Christmas a calendar of the so-called Montenegrin Orthodox Church in which were erased all saints except Vasilije Ostroski, and Orthodox or Serbian New Year is presented as New Summer or Vasiljevdan.

As “Novosti” reported, St. Sava has been removed from the calendar. On January 27th, according to the calendar, is celebrated the Feast of St. Nino, Enlightener of Georgia.

“It is a ‘publishing project’, aimed to boost lies and division. Church calendars should be published by the church, this is why I would not support to print calendars of SPC with the money of all citizens,” said Slaven Radunovic, an official of Nova.

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 -,, and 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.
