Thirty years have passed since Bishop Nikolaj departed from this world to a much better one, to God's eternal world. Long before, however, this great man from Lelić, the Bishop of Ohrid and Žiča of blessed repose, was rightfully known as our New Chrysostom.
On this thirtieth anniversary of his repose, it is my pleasure to reveal some more facts about him than are generally known by the people of Lelić in particular, by the Serbian people in general and by the Orthodox and Christian world at large. I am aware of my modest means in contrast to the complexities and greatness of the person and works of Bishop Nikolaj. However, as his closest compatriot and neighbour, I will attempt to present his evangelical life and his varied and prolific pastoral work, beginning with his birth in Lelić in 1880 and ending with his blessed repose in America in 1956. -- Bishop Artemije (Backcover)
