Letter of Condolences to HIs Holiness Patriarch John


To His Beatitude John X Patriarch of Antioch and All the East  Damascus 

Your Beatitude, Our dear brother and fellow servant in the Lord, We have received the sad news about the devastating explosion that took lives of many innocent people in Beirut, which We have recently visited, lovingly hosted by Your Beatitude and welcomed by many wonderful and cordial people. This horrible tragedy induced great sadness and pain in the heart of the Serbian people.

On behalf of the Serbian Orthodox Church and on my personal behalf, please receive along with the families of the afflicted ones and the entire fraternal population of Beirut the expressions of our prayerful condolences.  

We pray to our Lord Jesus Christ to heal the wounds of the injured, repose the souls of the dead, give comfort to the ones who stayed without their closest ones, and fortify and invigorate the spirit and health of all the ones who survived this tragedy.   

In addition, Your Beatitude, please convey the expressions of Our condolences and solidarity to the state authorities of our friendly country of Lebanon.     

With love in Christ the Lord,  

Serbain Patriarch Irinej
