Saint Justin was born to pious and God-fearing parents in Serbia on April 7th, 1894. He then completed the nine-years' studies at the Theological Faculty St. Sava in Belgrade in 1914  renowned throughout the Orthodox world as a holy place of extreme asceticism as well as of a high quality of scholarship. During the early part of World War I, in autumn of 1914, the future Saint served as a student nurse primarily in South Serbia. He passed from Peć to Skadar (along which 100,000 Serbian soldiers died), where on January 1, 1916, he entered the monastic order and took the name of Justin, after St. Justin the Philosopher. In 1934, Fr. Justin was chosen as Professor of Dogmatics at the Theological Faculty of St. Sava. He taught there until 1945, when he was ousted by the Communist party. As an ecclesiastical person and clergyman St. Justin spent 31 years in the Monastery Ćelije under the continuous surveillance of the Communist Party police, finally reposing in the Lord on his birthday, the Feast of the Annunciation (April 7th).
