In honour of the Independence Day

Bigorski Monastery “St John the Baptist”

What the oxygen for the body is, that is the liberty for the human soul. The more self-awareness a nation has, the more it cherishes its freedom. (Iv. S)

September 8th, 1991 proclaimed to the entire world the truth that Macedonia is worthy of the gift of freedom and the independent state formation.

The Fraternity of the Holy Bigorski Monastery would like to take this opportunity wholeheartedly and with great joy to congratulate all the citizens of the Republic of North Macedonia our Independence Day!

May the memory and the glory of all the Macedonian patriots and fighters for our freedom be eternal!

May God protect and preserve our Fatherland for all the centuries to come and may He inspire all our politicians with a devout love for our Homeland!
