Celebrating World Book and Copyright Day
Every year on 23rd April this day is celebrated to promote the enjoyment of books and reading. It is necessary to recognize the magical powers of books because they generate a link between the past and the future, a bridge between generations and across cultures.

Now more than ever, at a time when globally most schools are closed and people are having to limit time spent out of their homes, the power of books can be leveraged to combat isolation, to reinforce ties between people, and to expand our horizons, while stimulating our minds and creativity.

During the month of April and all year round, it is critical to take the time to read on your own or with your children. It is a time to celebrate the importance of reading, foster children's growth as readers, and promote a lifelong love of literature and integration into the world of work.
To honor World Book day Sebastian Press
will give 30% off The Prologue of Ohrid
during this day.

Palm Sunday

Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it. But Jesus said, “Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial. For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.” Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead. But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus. The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
Цветна Недеља

А Исус пре пасхе на шест дана дође у Витанију где беше Лазар што умре, кога подиже из мртвих. Онде Му, пак, зготовише вечеру, и Марта служаше, а и Лазар сеђаше с њим за трпезом; А Марија узевши литру правог нардовог многоценог мира помаза ноге Исусове, и отре косом својом ноге Његове; а кућа се напуни мириса од мира. Онда рече један од ученика Његових, Јуда Симонов Искариотски, који Га после издаде: Зашто се ово миро не продаде за триста гроша и не даде сиромасима? А ово не рече што се стараше за сиромахе, него што беше лупеж, и имаше ковчежић, и ношаше што се меташе у њ. А Исус рече: Не дирајте у њу; она је то дохранила за дан мог погреба; Јер сиромахе свагда имате са собом, а мене немате свагда. Разуме, пак, многи народ из Јудеје да је онде и дођоше не само Исуса ради него и да виде Лазара ког подиже из мртвих. А главари свештенички договорише се да и Лазара убију; Јер многи њега ради иђаху из Јудеје и вероваху Исуса. А сутрадан, многи од народа који беше дошао на празник, чувши да Исус иде у Јерусалим.
