St. Basil Ostrozhsky's Day in Montenegro (12/05)

Saint Basil of Ostrog is one of the most revered saints in the Serbian Orthodox Church (which includes Montenegro).

In the famous Montenegrin monastery Ostrog, carved into the rock, lie the relics of St. Basil of Ostrog, who is considered the patron saint of Montenegro. To get to the relics of the great saint on any day, at any time of the year, you need to stand in a huge queue. But it is not important. The main thing is that everyone manages to approach, and the holy ascetic helps everyone.

The fate of Vasily Ostrozhsky was very difficult. He experienced all the hardships of earthly life, insults, condemnations, while, like a true Christian, he did not grumble at fate, but on the contrary, he believed, hoped, endured and loved even more, rejoiced at life, showing by this the true path of a real person.
