We deeply regret the violence committed against Your citizen Brice Taton that happened in our city and which led to the death of this young man. On behalf of His Holiness Patriarch Pavle of Serbia and in my name and on behalf of all the fullness of the Serbian Church, I express most sincere condolences to a Brice's family, his friends, the French citizens and all those who knew him. We pray to our Lord Jesus Christ, to inspire and multiply goodwill among people and to direct the hearts of all of us to the persistent fight against any evil.
