Mr. François HOLLANDE

Mister President,

News on last night’s terrorist attacks at many locations in the capital of the Republic of France, Paris, has deeply disturbed Us. On behalf of the fullness of the Serbian Orthodox Church as well as on Our own behalf, please accept sincere condolences. In these moments Our prayers and Our thoughts are with the friendly and, to the Serbian people, always close French people.

We pray that God may repose the souls of all tragically killed, grant comfort to their families and relatives in their pain, a quick recovery to the wounded, and that the French people may overcome the current difficulties.
