Photos & videos from here

Dobri Dobrev, a saint of modern Bulgaria, has reposed at the age of 103. Elder Dobri was the single greatest donor to Sofia’s St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, in addition to supporting other churches and monasteries, and this was funded entirely from his begging, which he would do in front of the Cathedral every day after walking a number of miles from his village. He had nothing but love and prayers for everyone he encountered.
Pray for us before the Master!

The orthodox old beggar who helps orphans


Meet 98 year old Dobri Dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war. Every day he 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 known fixture around several of the city’s churches, 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 the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
