Fr. Norman July Catechesis “Your sins are forgiven”

Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us the keys of restorative healing and synergy with God with words like these: “Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you.” Saint John Chrysostom helped to prove it in his treatise that demonstrated if a man doesn’t suffer injury by his own hand then nothing or no one can harm him. In a time where so many derive self-worth from how they’re perceived by strangers on social media, while surveys show church attendance decreasing – well before the pandemic – Saint John’s words have never been more relevant and needed in order to bring a portion of God’s people back to Him in soul-saving humility.

Serbian Americans: History—Culture—Press

by Krinka Vidaković-Petrov, translated from Serbian by Milina Jovanović

Learned, lucid, and deeply perceptive, SERBIAN AMERICANS is an immensely rewarding and readable book, which will give historians invaluable new insights, and general readers exciting new ways to approach the history​ of Serbian printed media. Serbian immigration to the U.S. started dates from the first few decades of 19th c. The first papers were published in San Francisco starting in 1893. During the years of the most intense politicization of the Serbian American community, the Serbian printed media developed quickly with a growing number of daily, weekly, monthly and yearly publications. Newspapers were published in Serbian print shops, while the development of printing presses was a precondition for the growth of publishing in general. Among them were various kinds of books: classical Serbian literature, folksong collections, political pamphlets, works of the earliest Serbian American writers in America (poetry, prose and plays), first translations from English to Serbian, books about Serb immigrants, dictionaries, textbooks, primers, etc.
