SERBIAN SPRUCE

 



Mount Putnik



On Saturday 29th September, 2012, the Ravna Gora Serbian Heritage Society unveiled this plaque to commemorate Vojvoda Putnik on a mountain named after him.

Mount Putnik is a mountain located north of Three Isle Creek and west of the Kananaskis River in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park Alberta, Canada. The mountain is named after the Serbian Field Marshal Radomir Putnik.

Mount Putnik is close to Calgary, Canada. It seems appropriate to have named a mountain after the man who spearheaded one of Serbia’s most traumatic and heroic episodes in history.  When WWI broke, Field Marshal Vojvoda Putnik, then 51 and suffering ill-health, offered his resignation to King Petar I of Serbia.  The king rejected the offer and Putnik lead Serbian victories against the Austro-Hungarian army driving it out by December 1914.

CELEBRATION OF THE NIKOLA TESLA BIRTH

 



On Tuesday, October 24, 2017

two Serbian spruce were planted in the courtyard of St. Sava's church in Edmonton.


It has been used in landscape design since 1880. It is a coniferous tree-an evergreen that keeps its needles year-round. 


Serbian Spruce is a species of coniferous tree endemic to the Drina River valley in western Serbia and eastern Serbian Republic, with a total range of only about 60 ha, at 800–1,600 m (2,625–5,249 ft) altitude. It was originally discovered near the village of Zaovine on the Tara Mountain in 1875, and named by the Serbian botanist Josif Pancic.

Patriarchal Nativity Encyclical



Dear Brothers and Sisters,


The foundation of God's New and Eternal Covenant was laid on this very day, the first Christmas in history. Because today, our beloved spiritual children, the preeternal God accomplished a work greater than the creation of the universe and fulfilled the promise given to our first parents, the promise that the prophets had foretold from time immemorial, and which the Most Pure, the Most Blessed and Ever-Virgin Mary accepted in peace. God the Logos became man and dwelt among men. (cf. St. John 1:14) The Son of the Heavenly Father became a contemporary of mankind so that man could become co-eternal with God. The Lord Almighty “emptied himself, taking the form of a servant” (Philippians 2:7) and became one in body with our lowliness, so that he could make us equal to the image of His glory. That is why the Godly-wise Apostle Paul elatedly said: “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past understanding!” (Romans 11:33)  Read more….




NATIVITY ENCYCLICAL of Bishop Mitrofan


“When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, nd fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, frankinsence, and myrrh.» (Mt.. 2, 10-11

 Dear brothers and sisters,


This is how St. Matthew describes the arrival of the wise men from the East to their destination, Bethlehem in Judea. Only God knows how many days and nights they must have travelled.  They evidently did not lose hope that they will find the King of Judea and bow before Him. And above that they brought rich gifts to the One who has everything from Himself, the One who is the fullness of all things, and who does not need anything of this world. They are the first who announced  the birth of the King to those who did not know God. From that hour, that small manger became the holiest place on Earth. Holier than Sinai, and even Jerusalem. And its glory will grow with the glory of the God-child and His Mother, until the end of this world and time. For look, she hold the One who hold the world, and offers Him to unto us, so small and weak.   Read more...
