ST STEPHEN MILUTIN OF SERBIACommemorated on October 30Saint Stephen was the younger son of King Stephen Urosh I, and grandson of First-Crowned King St Stephen (September 24). He ruled Serbia from 1275 to 1320. Stephen Milutin received the throne from his elder brother Dragutin, a true Christian, who after a short reign transferred power over to his brother, and he himself in loving solitude withdrew to Srem, where he secretly lived as an ascetic in a grave, which he dug with his own hands. During his righteous life, St Dragutin toiled much over converting the Bogomil heretics to the true Faith. His death occurred on March 2, 1316.St Stephen Milutin, after he became king, bravely defended, by both word and by deed, the Orthodox Serbs and other Orthodox peoples from their enemies. St Stephen did not forget to thank the Lord for His beneficence. He built more than forty churches, and also many monasteries and hostels for travelers. The saint particularly concerned himself with the Athonite monasteries.When the Serbian kingdom fell, the monasteries remained centers of national culture and Orthodoxy for the Serbian nation. St Stephen died on October 29, 1320 and was buried at the Bansk monastery. After two years his incorrupt relics were uncovered.The Orthodox Church in America 11/11/2016 ...

СВЯТОЙ СТЕФАН МИЛЮТИН, КОРОЛЬ СЕРБСКИЙ, БРАТ ЕГО ДРАГУТИН И МАТЬ ИХ ЕЛЕНАСвятой Стефан был младшим сыном короля Стефана - Уроша I и внуком первовенчанного короля святого Стефана (память 24 сентября). Он правил Сербией с 1275 по 1320 год. Престол Стефан Милютин получил от старшего брата своего Драгутина, верного христианина, который после недолгого царствования передал власть брату, а сам, возлюбив отшельничество, затворился в Среме, где совершал тайные подвиги в яме-могиле, выкопанной собственноручно. В своей праведной жизни святой Драгутин много трудился над обращением к истинной вере еретиков-богомилов. Кончина его последовала 2 марта 1316 года.Святой Стефан Милютин, став королем, мужественно, словом и делом, часто с оружием в руках, защищал православных сербов и другие единоверные народы от многочисленных врагов. Благочестивый Стефан не забывал благодарить Господа за все Его благодеяния. Им построено более 40 храмов, множество монастырей и странноприимных домов. Особенно заботился святой об афонских монастырях.Когда сербское королевство пало, монастыри остались очагами национальной культуры и Православия в сербском народе. Святой Стефан скончался 29 октября 1320 года и погребен в Баньской обители. Через два года были открыты его нетленные мощи.Святая Елена, благочестивая мать своих святых сыновей, по смерти мужа всю жизнь посвятила богоугодным делам: строила дома для обнищавших поселян, устраивала обители для желающих жить в чистоте и девстве. Близ города Спича она воздвигла Реческий монастырь и наделила его угодьями. Перед своей кончиной святая Елена приняла иночество и отошла ко Господу 8 февраля 1306 года. ...

Suffer contempt and humiliation with good will, that you may have boldness before God. The man who with knowledge endures all manner of harsh words without having previously wronged his chider, at that same moment places a crown of thorns upon his head, and he is blessed, for he is crowned with an imperishable crown in a time that he knows not.St Isaac the Syrian: from the 4th Ascetical Homily ...
