We have had some computer problems lately, so I am writing this day’s entry on Monday, which means that I have possibly forgotten what occurred on Saturday. This might not mean a loss of memory, just an overload of information to sort out! Vladika Lazar served a Slava for a Serbian family that has, as its family slava, the memory of Saint John the Baptist. Dragan had brought the kolach [beautifully decorated bread], wine and kolivo [boiled wheat] and, while Vladika served, I chanted. Dragan and his wife Katya, have been very close to us and we rejoiced on this important day for their family. During Vespers, I hurried to the Emergency Ward of the Mission Hospital, fearing that the pain I was experiencing was caused by an infection. Glory to God, there was no infection and I am still alive.
