Rev. Presbyter Norman Kosanovich - Discovering God’s Covenant during Paschal Season 2020

Discovering God's Covenant during Paschal Season 2020 with Rev. Presbyter Norman Kosanovich, Parish Priest of Saint Steven's Serbian Orthodox Cathedral, Alhambra, California. Each Great Lent, and especially Holy Week, the Old Testament readings remind us of God’s repeated efforts to bring His beloved but “stiff-necked” people back to Himself when they continually and unfaithfully make their own selfish decision to seek after other gods to serve, for earthly gains that will fade away. When His Prophets fail to get the message across, what God does do is send His own Son to be born in the flesh in order to save that which is made in His image and likeness. What faith in that statement does do is bring God’s people – which now includes us and our stiff necks – back to Him in anticipation of His Kingdom. And for some of us, pain and suffering in this world just may be the medicine needed for our eternal salvation. We are, after all, called to take up our cross and follow Christ. Оur ways are not God’s ways, and Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life.

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.
