St. Nicholas of Libertyville

Christ is risen! Joyous feast! Today is the feast of one of North America's glorified saints, St. Nicholas (Velimirovich) of Libertyville and South Canaan. St. Nicholas (also commonly known as St. Nikolai of Zhicha or Ohrid) is often called 'the New Chrysostom' and left a rich legacy in both his native Serbian Orthodox Church in the Balkans and the USA as well as in what became the American Orthodox Church. More on his life and legacy can be found here. May his blessing and prayers be with us all!
