Beloved monastics, clergy, all sons and daughters, faithful spiritual children of our Holy Church in Australia and New Zealand, from a paternal heart overflowing with Paschal joy, We greet all of you on this great and most radiant Feast of Feasts exclaiming in the inspired words of the Holy Damascus:
On the radiant Feast of Resurrection of Christ, April 20th, 2014, His Holiness Serbian Patriarch Irinej visited the Diocese of Timok (Eastern Serbia). In front of the church of the Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God in Zajecar a solemn welcome was organized: Patriarch Irinej was welcomed by Bishop Justin of Timok with clergy, monks and the faithful people.
Patriarch Irinej thanked the Bishop for the welcome speech. Then a reception was held in honor of the Patriarch and his entourage at the Diocesan Centre in Zajecar.
