50th Celebration

October 11, 2020

Very Reverend and Reverend Fathers, Matushki, guests and my dear people;
good afternoon and welcome to the celebration of my first 50 years!

Glory be to Jesus Christ!

Last Tuesday, the 6th of October, 2013, seven years ago was the blessing of our first chapel we rented on Mojave and three and a half years later we were in our own place, where will we be in three and a half more years? God will bless what is needed we just have to show we are worthy and work for it and that means really hard.

50th Anniversary, part 3 of 3: The Episcopate

Thirty years a priest I managed to avoid the episcopate. When I left Belgrade in 1979, I knew that I wouldn’t be a Serbian bishop and when I left the Serbian Church in 1988, I thought this would avoid me the rest of my life. There is nothing better than being a parish priest, you know your people and you are a family. I even knew the names of the dogs in my homes.

Priesthood

My dear Readers,

Welcome back to the ongoing life of this lowly servant of God.

But before I proceed with the second installment, I want to thank all of you for the wonderful celebration on Sunday August 9th. I consider it a warm up for October 11th.

One of my spiritual children here sat down with me after the first segment was sent and said it was very interesting and good for children to know who their father is, pretty humbling.

Part 1 of 3: Formation

My dear faithful readers,

I started to write my memoirs at the 5th anniversary of my episcopate and over the years worked on them a little at a time hoping now to finish them this fall after starting some fifteen years ago. Milestones are always significant and this year marks the 50th anniversary of my ordination August 9, 1970.

Formation is one of the three parts in my memoirs and so I’m going to give a condensed version of who I am and some of what I have done and ask you to pretend like this is interesting when you see me.
