Christmas Eve in the church of Saint Sava on Vracar
His Holiness Irinej, Serbian Patriarch, attended last night burning of badnjaks (Yule logs) at the plateau in front of the Saint Sava Cathedral on Vracar.
Serbian Patriarch Irinej greeted the gathered faithful people with the traditional greeting Christ is born - True He is born! and said that the Christmas Eve is the joyful feast day which we had inherited from our ancestors, and that the Yule log is a symbol of the divine love. Among the believers who gathered at the plateau there was also Mr. Nebojsa Covic, a member of the temporary City Council.
