With the Blessing of His Grace Bishop LONGIN, of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Diocese of the Midwest and New Gracanica, we begin this series of brief meditations. In this time of fear, lack of church attendance and uncertainty, with paternal love in Christ and care for each and every one of you, we will be making an effort to offer some encouragement. Each week, two of our Abbots and one of our very respected priests will be offering (a brief) soul satisfying words of holy scripture and holy tradition. This series is offered by Fr. Alexii, a priest-monk and abbot of Holy Archangel Michael and All Angels Skete in Weatherby, Missouri. .
