"You showed me the church of Yours as the source of health", Dusan's gift charter. -Full reconstruction was interrupted... -In June 1999 a monk from the monastery, Fr. Chariton, was abducted. -Now - a spiritual center gathering the remaining Orthodox people from Prizren and around.

Holy Archangels' Dream near Prizren, Serbia

Milica Stanojevic

City of Prizren quietly sleeps,
While over him fog moves,
On Kosovo, plane field,
In the heart of Metohija, exactly.

The big cloud is over him,
Dushan’s city quietly dreams,
The emperor from heaven is crying,
In his city there is no Serbs.

Enemy of the Cross is ruling the country,
Destroying churches and Christian homes,
The Cross is on bonfire, and the “moon” is exalted,
Turning down Serbian Sanctities.

In that night, big and dark,
Like dawn something shining,
Fighting the evil and unjustice,
“Archangels” are rising up!

And the walls of Emperor’s city,
Unconquered standing still,
Because, they are guarded by the Holy Force,
Dushan won’t lose his empire!

And don’t regret Serbian nation!
Yours wounds will be healed,
Strong faith will help,
God and Holy Archangels!
