To the Glory of God the Father

And their selected writings

This book contains the lives of the two new Saints of the Church who were granted to the North American continent through the Serbian Orthodox Church. The main incentive for publishing this hagiographical work comes from the desire to refresh the memory on these Christ-like people. Bishop Mardarije Uskokovic and Arhimandrite Sebastian Dabovich were the best examples of servant leadership (Matthew 20:27-28), in our recent history in the USA.

“It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us (Acts 15:28) that at the priestly Assembly of Hierarchs of the Serbian Orthodox Church, to the glory of God, Father and Son and Holy Spirit, who is glorious in His Saints, and for the spiritual good and overall progress of our local Church and the entire One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Christ, to add to the Synaxis of Saints Venerable Archimandrite SEBASTIAN, who glorified God with his life and works and whom the Lord has already glorified through precious signs and the reverence of all people.

Introduction to the Holy Scriptures of the New Testament

Lovers and seekers of God turn to the Holy Scriptures. Individuals serious about Christian learning immerse themselves in the New Testament. Bishop Dr. MITROPHAN is an accomplished New Testament scholar and professor.

His Grace has devoted countless hours to study, research and teaching the New Testament.  His thousands of miles of travel to St. Sava School of Theology to teach the New Testament reflect His depth of commitment, love and interest.
