The memory of Patriarch Pavle of Serbia of thrice-blessed memory was commemorated on Friday, November 15, on the 10th anniversary of his blessed repose.
On that day, a Divine Liturgy and panikhida were served in Pat. Pavle’s memory by His Grace Bishop Stephan of Remesiana at Rakovica Monastery in Belgrade, where the Patriarch’s holy relics lie in repose, Orthochristian reports.
The memorial services were held with the blessing of His Holiness Patriarch Irinej of Serbia and the participation of several priests and deacons.
His Holiness Patriarch Pavle of Serbia (September 11, 1914-November 15, 2009) lived a long life full of Christian asceticism.
His simplicity, meekness, and humility, combined with his strict asceticism inspired the love that millions of believers had for him during his lifetime.
Many already considered him a living saint, and after his repose, faith in the holiness of Patriarch Pavle is growing ever more and strengthening in the hearts of the faithful.
