Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Now, at this moment, we have just learned of the repose of His Holiness… our Patriarch Pavle… may the Lord grant him peace in the Kingdom of Heaven.  

It is just now, when we lay the cornerstone for this holy church… may the Lord receive him in His holy embrace.

This morning he took Communion, administered by our Fr Mefodije, and his Christ-loving heart ceased to beat…  

May the Lord grant him the Kingdom of Heaven. In blessed repose grant, O Lord, eternal rest to Your departed servant, Archbishop of Pec and Patriarch of Serbia Pavle, and grant him eternal memory…
