Собор Єпископів Української Православної Церкви в США висловлюють співчуття Священному Синоду Сербської Православної Церкви з приводу упокоєння Патріарха Сербії Іринея

To our brethren in the Lord: Metropolitans, Archbishop, Bishops, venerable clergy, devout monastics and Christ-loving faithful of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

CHRIST IS AMONG US!

It has only been a few hours since that moment when the servant of God, His Holiness Patriarch Irinej departed this physical world and was born unto eternal life. This just, forbearing and faithful steward, through whose hands, Almighty God, One in the Holy Trinity, blessed all His children in the land of Serbia, and whose voice, like the voice of Saint Sava, never ceased to proclaim the word of truth – the  Gospel message in a land enriched by the witness of so many saints.

The venerable clergy and devout laity of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the United States of America join with us and our brother in the Episcopacy, His Eminence Archbishop Daniel in expressing our most profound condolences to the people of God of Serbia, with whom we share a sacred union through the waters of Baptism and the oil of Chrismation. With you, our Serbian Orthodox brothers and sisters we implore Christ our true God, risen from the dead, Who rules over the living and the dead, to rest the soul of His faithful servant, Patriarch Irinej, in the bosom of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and to appoint him his place at your heavenly altar. 

We assure you of our prayers for the blessed repose and eternal memory of the devout servant of God, Patriarch Irinej throughout this forty day period of  reflection – prayers also for the comfort of  you, his spiritual children.

Memory Eternal!

+Antony,

By the Grace of God, Metropolitan of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA.
