To the Glory Of God the Father - The Lives of St. Mardarije & St. Sebastian

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.

Proclaiming him a holy, Christ-bearing God-pleaser of the Orthodox Church, we pray to the Lord that his witness of the Only Lover of man, and his living example of faith and love be an invitation to us all that we follow and glorify him in Christ’s Church in the divine services and through hymns of praise. This glorification bestows upon God's Church a great spiritual joy and thanksgiving to the Living Lord.
Through the prayers of our Venerable Father Sebastian, O Most Holy Trinity, our God, have mercy upon us and save us.

To the Only All-Wise God the Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord, and the Holy Spirit, be glory and majesty, power and dominion, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.”

(From the Proclamation of the Two New Saints, by the Holy Assembly of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church, May, 29/16, 2015 – AS No. 110/recording 261)

“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 spi-ritual 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 Bishop MARDARIJE of blessed repose, who glorified God with his life and works and whom the Lord has already glorified through precious signs and the reverence of all people.
