Patriarch Irinej: Great infernal power orchestrates Montenegrin authorities
Montenegrin authorities want to rule the Church and destroy it, the Primate of the Serbian Orthodox Church drew public attention.
Only God can protect the Orthodox shrines of Montenegro, because behind the shoulders of the country's authorities is a great infernal force, the Primate of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Irinej of Serbia, addressed the believers.
“Insoluble problems, as taught by the Holy Apostles, should be left to God, because there is no problem that God cannot solve. And the shrines of Montenegro can only be protected by God, because behind the backs of the leaders of Montenegro there is a great infernal force, and they only do their job of destroying and dividing the Serbs,” he said on the website of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
The Primate of the Serbian Church drew attention to the fact that those who adopted the anti-church law “On Freedom of Religion and Belief and the Legal Status of Religious Communities” thus extended their hands to the great national shrines, including the monastery of St. Peter of Cetinje.
“Our Church is the Church of Christ, the Church of the Holy Spirit led originally by Jesus Christ, the Patriarch recalled <...>. And today they condemn Her and want to control Her and destroy Her. That is their goal. The world has not seen such lawlessness,” said Patriarch Irinej.
He drew public attention to the fact that the Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro is supported not only by other Local Orthodox Churches, but even by the Roman Catholic Church.
“Our forces may be small, but our prayers are not small, because we leave all our problems to God. And nobody has ever won the battle against God,” concluded the Primate of the Serbian Church.
We will recall that on January 26, 2020, in Belgrade, Orthodox Serbs came out to a protest prayer in support of believers in Montenegro.
On the night of January 26-27, 2020, about 50,000 believers in Montenegro went to a night prayer stand in defense of their shrines.
