  1. I had the privilege and honor of interviewing Mr. Jibilian. It turned out to be his last interview (together with Mr. Gregory Freeman, author of The Forgotten 500). As soon as we post the interview in our podcast archive we will let you know.

  2. This is a great loss to our entire Serbian community. We had the pleasure of meeting Art and his family on several occasions as he was one of the only people who personally knew my father - St. Budimir of Dobrun - and shared his experiences with us. Our prayers are with him and his family. May his memory be eternal! With blessings, Fr. Vasilije Sokolovic and family
