ПО МИЛОСТИ БОЖЈОЈ
ПРАВОСЛАВНИ AРХИEПИСКОП ПЕЋКИ, МИТРОПОЛИТ БЕОГРАДСКО-КАРЛОВАЧКИ И ПАТРИЈАРХ СРПСКИ, СА СВИМ АРХИЈЕРЕЈИМА СРПСКЕ ПРАВОСЛАВНЕ ЦРКВЕ – СВЕШТЕНСТВУ, МОНАШТВУ И СВИМА СИНОВИМА И КЋЕРИМА НАШЕ СВЕТЕ ЦРКВЕ: БЛАГОДАТ, МИЛОСТ И МИР ОД БОГА ОЦА, И ГОСПОДА НАШЕГ ИСУСА ХРИСТА, И ДУХА СВЕТОГА, УЗ НАЈРАДОСНИЈИ ВАСКРШЊИ ПОЗДРАВ:

„Христос васкрсе, смрт поразивши
и мртве подигавши.
Народи, веселите се!”
(канон Пасхе, 9. песма).

Прославимо данас, драга браћо и сестре, Господа Бога нашега, „Који походи и избави народ Свој” (Лк 1,68) и светлошћу Васкрсења Свога просветли сву васељену! Прославимо Господа „Који би предан за грехе наше и устаде за оправдање наше” (Рим 4,25)! Прославимо Господа Који, поставши човек нас ради, претрпе смрт да би нам Васкрсењем Својим отворио двери новога живота! Јер, сви који се у Христа крстисмо, у Христу умресмо старом човеку, да бисмо васкрснути, препорођени, обновљени у Њему, и живели са Њим заувек (Рим 6,8). Христос устаде из мртвих и постаде Првенац од уснулих (1. Кор 15,20), те и ми који умиремо у Адаму, бивамо оживљени у Христу, постајући нова твар. Continue
