Welcome on the official site of Calapodeşti Monastery. For those of you that don't know, the monastery was built in the honnor of (orthodox) Saint Antipa The Romanian (celebrated on 10th) of january).He is one of the romanian saints, maybe too little known even for his compatriots, but celebrated and loved by entire orthodoxy. That is because even though he was born in Calapodeşti (village in eastern Romania, Bacau county) he travelled, by God's will, as far as north of Russia, at Valaam Monastery, where he ended his earthly voyage.
In his honnor, we, the ones that are honnoured by him, have began raising a small convent, still under construction. Knowing the esteem Saint Antipa is getting from the orthodox worldwide, we also tooked the iniative of building this site and translating it into many languages, for the message to reach more people, worldwide.
In these virtual pages you will find multimedia files and different articles regarding our monastery, as well as the services for Saint Antipa (the main patron saint) and for All The Romanians Saints (the second patrons of our convent). Both services will soon be translated, we hope, into english and were composed by Bishop Joachim, Bishop of Roman and Bacau.
In the end, we'd like to mention that all the materials from this site (images, backgrounds, multimedia, articles) are free only for personal use. It is forbiden to sell them, either as a whole, either as excerpts. Feel free to contact use if needed, from the Contact page. Thank you and enjoy your browsing through the site!
Tropar, gl. 5
Peste pământ arcuindu-te ca un curcubeu, ai ajuns din Sfântul Munte în Athosul de la miazănoapte, Valaam. O, Sfinte Părinte Antipa, mult lăudatule, asemenea mult minunaţilor bătrâni ai Moldovei te-ai făcut; şi acum, locuind în slava cerescului Valaam, roagă-L pe Hristos Dumnezeul nostru să ne povăţuiască pe calea îngerească.
Icoana Maicii Domnului, găsită de Cuviosul Antipa, de care se face pomenire în viaţa lui.
Condacul, gl. 4
Din frământătura ostenelilor înmuiate cu lacrimile milostivirii tale, ai dospit rugăciunea cea mult roditoare, Părintele nostru Antipa. Adu-ţi aminte şi de neamul nostru din care ai odrăslit, Preafericite, şi ocroteşte patria ta cu mijlocirile tale către Dumnezeu, ca să-ţi cântăm ţie: Bucură-te, odraslă a Moldovei, iubitorule de pustnicie.
