Archbishop of Cetinje and Metropolitan of Montenegro celebrated Divine Liturgy in the church of St. Parasceve at Golubovci on March 19, 2017.

In his liturgical sermon after the Gospel reading, the Metropolitan pointed out that Christ’s Cross is the power the Lord revealed and granted us by His own Death and Crucifixion. It was Him Who first denied Himself, Who sacrificed Himself to the very end, Who was crucified for us and for our illumination and salvation sake. He was crucified and died in order to grant us eternal and never-ceasing life. Great Lent is just in that sign, in the sign of our purification, spiritual transformation… During the Liturgy he ordained into the priesthood deacon Blazo Petrovic, who is going to be pa parish priest in Zeta.
