I was born from my father priest Dimitar and mother Vaskresija
as the seventh child of twelve children, five males and seven
females. The Slavic letter I learnt from my father, Dimitar
Macedonian, who is called like that because we are
Macedonians, not Greeks, and his father was called Joseph the
priest, and his grandfather Stojmen the priest. I took his
nickname Macedonian as well, not because of my father and my
grandfather, but to know that we are Slavs of Macedonia.
