Merry X-Mas

December 24, 2008

In a grotto at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem a silver star marks the exact site of the birth of Jesus. One of the places I will remember most vividly 2008 for. Merry X-Mas!

Miraculous Icons in Bulgaria

December 23, 2008

‘Miraculous Icons in Bulgaria’ – a photo album of 17 miraculous icons in Bulgaria and their history has been published earlier this month (for now in Bulgarian & Russian languages). The book contains contact information on the places of worship where the original icons can be found. The album can be obtained at church book stores. Source: Pravoslavie (in Bulgarian).
