ALL-ENGLISH LITURGY
 
Tonight, Friday, July 18!

Guest Speaker and Author, Fr. Milorad Loncar will give a presentation on the life of Saint Nikolaj Velimirovic at St. Michael’s Serbian Orthodox Church on July 18th, 2014 at 7:00 PM.  The lecture is free and open to the public.

 

Saint Nikolaj Velimirovic (1880-1956) was a deeply spiritual and academically brilliant man.  He received the first of several doctorate degrees in 1909 in theology.  When World War I broke out, he was sent to England on a diplomatic mission and earned another doctorate degree in philosophy from Oxford University.  When he returned to Serbia, he was consecrated a Bishop in 1919.   St. Nikolaj was fluent in Russian, French, German and English.  During World War II, Bishop Nikolaj courageously spoke out against the Nazis and both he and Patriarch Gavrilo were arrested, imprisoned and tortured at the infamous Dachau concentration camp.  Having been released in 1945 following the Allied liberation, Bishop Nikolaj came to America rather than return to the communist-governed Yugoslavia.  He taught at several seminaries prior to his repose in 1956.  St. Nikolaj is the author of many highly regarded spiritual books, including The Prologue of Ochrid, The Life of St. Sava, Prayers By the Lake and many other profound writings.  His missionary letters have been collected and published in three volumes.  In 2003, Bishop Nikolaj was glorified as a universal Orthodox saint by the Serbian Orthodox Church.

 

Guest Speaker, Fr. Milorad Loncar, lives at the Monastery of New Gracanica near Chicago, Illinois.  Originally from Serbia, Fr. Milorad served as a parish priest in Australia for 25 years.  In 1999, he was appointed Secretary of the Midwestern Archdiocese.  Fr. Milorad has also been involved in writing and editing Orthodox books such as the Missionary Letters of St. Nikolaj Velimirovic.  He has been active in spiritual education and has served as a guest speaker at Orthodox retreats and conferences.
