SAINT Justin Popovic

Fr Milovan Katanic just left this amazing piece of news as a comment:
Just wanted to share the great news that today at our SPC Synod Meeting in Belgrade, the name of Father Justin Popovic, confessor of the monastery cells near Valjevo (1894-1979) has been added to the Diptychs of the Church as an official saint, along with the new St. Simeon Popovic, Abbot of the monastery Dajbabe near Podgorica (1854-1941), now Saint Simeon Dajbabskog. They will be officially canonized on May 2 at the St. Sava Temple on Vracar.

Haven't blogged about it myself but wanted to share with you since this blog is dedicated to Fr. Justin.

Glory to God! In 2006, I had the blessing to visit Cheliej and Valjievo, and venerated the tomb of St Justin and the relics of St Nikolai. They are both beautiful places about an hour and a half away from Belgrade.
