Farewell speech of the Serbian Patriarch Porfirije at the funeral of Bishop Atanasije (Jevtic) of blessed repose

  With the blessing of the Patriarch, the letter was read by His Eminence Metropolitan Hrizostom of Dabar-Bosnia.

Brothers archbishops, priests, monks and nuns, faithful people of Saint Sava‘s Herzegovina and all of you, brothers and sisters from various Serbian areas: from Kosovo to Jadovno, from Thessaloniki to Buda, wherever there are Serbian birds, arrived in Trebinje and the Tvrdos monastery to see off our father and Bishop Atanasije on the way from death to life. To eternal life! Even more - countless more - are ourselves who are in the spirit with you and grieve that we cannot receive the last blessing and the last kiss to give. Among them are me, once young and ignorant, and the bishop would say an unknown student of the first year of theology. But - his student, which I am infinitely proud of, and my heart is full when I say it or think about it, and I trust many bishops, priests, monks, who were his students, who listened to him at the faculty in those old years, at public lectures in Belgrade, and also those who serve the Church as lay people, and on Sundays and holidays they flocked to the Vavedenje monastery, where he, together with wonderful professors, served our fathers Amfilohije and Irinej and opened the doors of the Kingdom of Heaven to us on earth.
