Manastirea Partos ( 1655) – prin pozitionarea ei in mijlocul comunitatii rurale este un loc deosebit atat din punct de vedere spiritual cat si al deschiderii fata de oameni si cultura.

Parintele Ieromonah Varlaam Almajanu – dupa o perioada lunga in care manastirea a fost inchisa, i-a deschis din nou portile reinviind astfel si micul sat  incredintat manastirii.

In timpul sederii mele in satul Partos am fost condusa de catre un vietuitor al manastirii prin casele satenilor, multi dintre ei fiind a limita extrema a saraciei, dar toti ne-au primit cu inimile deschise pentru ca veneam din partea “parintelui” si nu putem aduce decat bine.

Prin slujirea cu iubire a acestui calugar numit de copii Padre, acesta a reusit sa deschida inimile impietrite de greutati, ale oamenilor, spre iubire, spre lumina, gasindu-si iarasi bucuria de a trai.

Acestia spun: ” Chiar daca e greu, de cand a venit “Padre” la manastirea noastra avem speranta, salvare si multa iubire!”

Un om iubitor atrage langa el oameni asemanatori lui si impreuna pot schimba lumea. In jurul parintelui si a Manastirii s-a format o extraordinară comunitate implicată în tot ceea ce înseamnă viața și misiunea acestui loc.

Doamne Multumim!

The Partos Monastery (1655) – by its positioning in the middle of the rural community is a special place both from the spiritual point of view and from the openness towards people and culture.

Father  Varlaam Almajanu – after a long period in which the monastery was closed, he opened the gates again, thus reviving the small village entrusted to the monastery.

During my stay in Partos I was led by a man of the monastery through the houses of the villagers, many of whom were at the extreme limit of poverty, but they all received us with open hearts because we came from the monastery and we can bring only good.

Through the loving service of this monk named by  children “Padre” , he managed to open the hearts of people, to love, to the light, and to find again the joy of living.

They say: “Even if it’s hard since “Padre” came to our monastery we have hope, salvation and much love!”

A loving man draws near him people like him and together they can change the world. A extraordinary community has been formed around the Priest and the Monastery involved in everything that is the life and mission of this place.

Thank God!
