"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 (Part Two)

Nemanja Kijačić

In a hurry to “Holy Archangels”,
The hart of spirituality,
On crucified Kosovo.

When I pass the gate of “Archangels”,
I cherish green brows of Shar-mountains,
As I walk a sound of clarity of a river I can find,
The smell of incense and candles, that I feel,
Then, I am sure,
I have entered in the house of God!

It was turning down by people, which are not,
It was turning down by centuries.
But, they can not crush it down!

Who was crushing down “The Archangels”,
He was crushing down himself.

God can’t be crushed down.
God is not in stones,
In woods or gold,
God is in his people,
In hart and wisdom.
You can not touch the God,
But you can feel and see Him.
