Помоћ Кола српских сестара за српске ученике на Косову

Сва деца из српског села Кузмин, код Косова Поља, добила су новчану помоћ коју је сакупило Коло српских сестара из Сан Франциска. 

Поклон за осамдесеторо деце уручио је епископ западно-амерички Максим који је посетио Основну школу "Аца Маровић" и ово изоловано место у албанском окружењу.

"Драга децо, драги учитељи, желим да вам пренесем поздраве ваших вршњака из Сан Франциска и Америке. Они вам поручују, да тамо, у далеком свету, неко мисли на вас и жели да вам помогне у вашем селу, у вашем месту", рекао је владика Максим који је разговарио са децом.

Основна школа у Кузмину ради у тешким и неодговарајућим условима, а настава се одвија од првог до четвртог разреда. Њени ђаци су владики поклонили своје цртеже уместо разгледница за своје вршњаке у Америци.

"Заиста смо почаствовани овом посетом, био је ово прави празник за децу. Нама ретко ко долази, некако смо овде одвојени од света, али има добрих људи и хвала им свима", рекла је учитељица Сузана Андрић.

Коло српских сестара из Сан Франциска и Епархија западно-америчка годинама помажу српској деци у селима Косова и Метохије. У Кузмину живи око сто српских породица, приметан је тренд исељавања, али се земља и куће не продају Албанцима.

My Brother's Keeper

by Fr. Radovan Bigovic

Rare are the books of Orthodox Christian authors that deal with the subject of politics in a comprehensive way. It is taken for granted that politics has to do with the secularized (legal) protection of human rights (a reproduction of the philosophy of the Enlightenment), within the political system of so-called "representative democracy", which is limited mostly to social utility or to the conventional rules of human relations. Most Christians look at politics and democracy as unrelated with their experience of the Church herself, which abides both in history and in the Kingdom, the eschaton. Today, the commercialization of politics—its submission to the laws of publicity and the brainwashing of the masses—has literally abolished the "representative" parliamentary system. So, why bother with politics when every citizen of so-called developed societies has a direct everyday experience of the rapid decline and alienation of the fundamental aspects of modernity?

In the Orthodox milieu, Christos Yannaras has highlighted the conception of the social and political event that is borne by the Orthodox ecclesiastical tradition, which entails a personalistic (assumes an infinite value of the human person as opposed to Western utilitarian individualism) and relational approach. Fr Radovan Bigovic follows this approach. In this book, the reader will find a faithful engagement with the liturgical and patristic traditions, with contemporary thinkers, Orthodox and non-Orthodox, all in conversation with political science and philosophy. As an excellent Orthodox theologian and a proponent of dialogue, rooted in the catholic (holistic) being of the Orthodox Church and of his Serbian people, Fr Radovan offers a methodology that encompasses the above-mentioned concerns and quests.
