On Sunday, January 7th, a large number of Orthodox believers celebrating Christmas as per the Julian calendar gathered in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Vraka to celebrate the birth of God’s Son and attend the traditional Christmas liturgy.

Like every year, Father Radomir Nikčević from the Metropolitanate of the Montenegrin led liturgy, who, after reading the Gospel, greeted them on the occasion of this holiday, and wished peace and joy to prevail in their homes. He emphasized the wisdom of the Jewish sages who emphasized the modesty that God had solved for his Son of God to be born in a cave, because “instead of human creations, Christ chose to be born in the place he created himself”, Father Nikcevic added. He said that Christ returns to every generation and people who accepts his birth, existence and purpose that he came to this world.

– Christ was sacrificed for us, and for this reason we also bring wood to warm our home. Christ, the Son of God, one of the Holy Trinity was born as a man to save each one of us. May the Lord give you the peace, light and warmth of this holiday to your homes, and that with his warmth and love, every soul in this city will be transformed, because it will testify that this life is only the way to eternal life “- concluded Father Nikčević.

He conveyed the blessing to the faithful of the Metropolitan of the Montenegrin, Amfilohije, and greeted the Ambassador of the Republic of Serbia to Albania, Miroljub Zaric, as well as the Presidents of the association Sv. Jovan Vladimir and Moraca-Rozafa.

After the worship of the believers, Christmas presents were distributed to children, while a table of Christian love was organized for guests in one of the local restaurants.
