Dear readers,

The Holy Bigorska Monastery prayerfully and compassionately joins the day of mourning for the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, expressing its condolences to the families of the victims and to all those affected. Our thoughts, feelings, and prayers are with them all. We earnestly pray that God may grant rest to the souls of the departed, speedy recovery to the injured, and comfort to the grieving. At the same time, we pray for all the selfless rescuers from the affected countries and from around the world, who tirelessly help and save human lives. May the Lord reward them with abundant blessings, and may He grant that as many people as possible are rescued from the rubble.
