98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well recognized fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living entirely off his monthly state pension of 80 euros and the kindness of others.
I would love to meet him one day <3 A true example of the genuine Orthodox Christian life!
I met Dobri briefly when I was in Sofia in 2004.
I had the honor of giving him some money outside of Alexander Nevski’s Orthodox Church there, not knowing then who he was and what he did with the money.
I look forward to meeting him again in the Kingdom.
bless this man.
