Each family in Serbia inhearets the Patron Saint from generation to generation, from father to son, but in my case, being a daughter, I celebrate my family Patron Saint cause I’ve stayed in my fathers household- my brothers moved out and they celebrate it also. If you like to know more about this celebration that we call “slava” there is a pretty good article at Wikipedia.
The celebration lasts 3 days – I’m not sure, but I think this is the only religious holiday that we celebrate for 3 days.
I have double reason to like this – my family traditional religious holiday cause on a 3rd day it’s my b-ay- Happy b-day to me, happy b-day….. 🙂 I am 50 and at least 34 to go. You can see some pictures in my photo-blog if you like> Birthday and Saint Michael’s Day
I’m not going to talk much about Archangels here cause I want to dedicate one separate post to Angels and write as much as I know about them and not just few words – I love Angels, and as Sylvia Browne says, (I totally agree with her) Angels are much more powerful than we recognize and that we can probably say that they are the most underestimated and the least appreciated form of creation.
I like this little guardian angels prayer and maybe you will.
Muahaaa and shine like the star that you are!
