Read the full message of the Patriarch of Serbia:
In the spirit of cultivating good interfaith and good neighborly relations, we congratulate all Muslims on the great Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha, in which Muslims around the world remember the sacrifice of the ancestor Abraham, and their customs indicate the importance of mercy, benevolence and philanthropy, and we wish them a healthy holiday, peace and love.
Let the celebrations of our religious holidays be occasions to get to know each other and get closer in order to testify in a dignified way that we are descendants of the same ancestors.
