Holy relics from Alaska, USA, to Vidin, Bulgaria
The holy relics of the reverend Saint Herman of Alaska, Miraculous of All America, embedded in an icon of the Reverend, were brought and donated to the Vidin Diocese by His Eminence David, Bishop of Sitka and Alaska. The donation is made in an expression of the brotherly love in Christ, which His Eminence has to the Bulgarian Orthodox Church and specifically to the Vidin Diocese.
The precious shrines were welcomed by His Eminence Metropolitan Vidin, bishop Daniil, clerics and laymen from the diocese yesterday - in Montana, and today - in Vidin.
Saint German came to America as part of the Russian Orthodox Mission in Alaska in 1794. He lived there until his death for more than four decades, mentoring local people and Alaska-living Russians in words and deeds. He leads an extremely ascetic and modest life.
In order to arrive in Bulgaria, the icon with his face and a piece of his holy relics traveled over 10,000 kilometers.
Bishop David heads the dioceses of the Orthodox Church in America in Sitka and Alaska.
