Easter Service Held at Main Serb Church in Sarajevo

Easter mass and service were held Sunday at the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Theotokos in Sarajevo for the Serb Orthodox Church members. The service was led by Archimandrite Lazar Lazarević, rector of the Seminary in Foca.

After the prayer, the Easter letter of Serbian Patriarch Irinej was read by Archpriest Vladimir Stupar. The Patriarch criticized “attempts to call evil good, and good evil, and make sin something modern and acceptable”. He said young people are given idols and antiheroes instead of virtue and integrity, and encouraged to disobey parents and reject authority.

 

The Patriarch also criticized abortion: “Why the ‘human rights advocates’ aren’t defending the weakest, the unborn children in the womb of their mothers,” the letter read.
