Expectations St. Nikolai Velimirovic Study Group
The St. Nikolia Velimirovic Study Group Commences
With Blessing of Bishop Jerome Of Synodal Cathedral of the Sign in New York
The St. Nikolai Velimirovic Study Group will begin Next Thursday, the 5th of November 2009 at the Synodal Cathedral of the Icon of the Mother of God of the Sign in New York, City. The group will begin at 7:00 pm. nThe addresss is 75 E. 93rd Street between Park and Madison Avenue. There will be an akathist to the Mother of God, and the group will begin with a short introduction by Fr. Djokan of St. Sava Cathedral of New York.
The spirit in which this group will be conducted is as a simple bible study--it is not an academic endeavour simply to increase our knowledge of things divine; Hopefully one will apply what is learned here in order to understand political history as it pertains to our Church and to our lives--how past Orthodox souls lived amongst so much distortion and attacks on the Faith without compromising their Faith and were thus able to be martyred for their Faith. And for those who were blessed by God to stay upon the earth, they were additionally blessed to attend to the needs of those still living in the world as witnesses of God.
Why was the decision of Tsar Lazar to be martyred for the Faith so pleasing to God--Why was this necessary for Serbia at that time. How will this help us to understand the demise of nations in the Old Testament? What are the roles of nations currently and the leaders of these nations. How do the people of a nation, by their actions in Faith, participate in the spiritual health of their nation before God? Do secular groups proclaiming an allegience to God have a role to play in the Church of God? These are the questions that a reading of the Mystery and Meaning of the Battle of Kosovo will address.
Participants will take turns reading,for about 25 minutes, and then there will be a discussion of what has been read for about 15 minutes, and then there will be closing prayer to the Mother of God. The group will last for only an hour.
Please there is no need for video cameras, or tape recorders. This is simply a humble group to read the writings of St. Nikolai which he left to his flock by the Grace of God, so that we may acquire a correct understanding of world events as they relate to the Church and its Salvific Mission for the Human Race.
In Christ God, all who want this understanding are welcomed to attend.
For the Glorious Cross and Glorious Freedom

The University of Utah, with the help and support of the Skopjian lobby in
Washington DC and the support of the Turkish Lobby which has facilitated Turkish
government funding of the University of Utah, is launching a conference on Nov
5th 2009 on University of Utah grounds dedicated to advancing false historical
revisionism and irredentist propaganda. Speakers will promote neo- Communist
false historical revisionism attempting to downplay the immense loss of Hellenic
life to terrorism, downplay the suffering (through the use of Child Abduction of
Hellenic children and outright war) under Communist and Skopjian occupation, and
advance a general atmosphere of anti-Hellenic hate . The fact that this
Anti-Hellenic Hate Fest is taking place in Utah, a state where unrepentant
Nordic supremacists massacred Hellenes in bloody and gruesome lynchings is particularly troubling and offensive to the Hellenic-American community.
WHAT YOU CAN DO: Telephone, email, fax and write to the Michael K. Young,
President of the University of Utah and urge him to STOP the Skopjian conference
and issue an apology to the victimized Hellenic people in his state and around
