The feast day of Sts Peter and Paul in Cathedral church in Novi Sad

Bishop Irinej: After suffering, calvary, torment and trouble, the apostles are the first. The essence of their primacy is that they serve everyone else, and no one serves them. By serving others - their neighbors - they serve God, and by serving the Living God, they serve, therefore, their neighbors as well. To be the first means: to make the greatest sacrifice, to serve everyone and, through that, to serve the Lord Christ, Who made Himself, as Lord and the Lord of everything and everyone, the Servant of the Lord, the Servant of our salvation and the salvation of all creation.
