At the beginning of their conversations, Serbian Orthodox Metropolitan Porfirije addressed Mr. Vucic and Mrs. Grabar Kitarovic pointing out that he himself was excited by the words they had pronounced that day, the words of responsibility for and care about normal relations between the two countries, Serbia and Croatia. Addressing President Vucic, His Excellency underlined that his visit represented encouragement for the Serbian people in Croatia. According to his words, Serbia and Croatia have been always directed to one another, but unfortunately, circumstances of life have been such "that we have moved away from each other."

St Gregory the Theologian

The fabric of Christendom was woven into its strength and beauty of character by the threads of men such as St. Gregory the Theologian, who became one of the four great doctors of the Church during the 4th century AD, along with Saints Basil the Great, John Chrysostom and Athanasios the Great. He is further remembered as one of the three so-called Cappadocian Fathers, an honour he shares with Sts Basil and Gregory of Nyssa. He is also recognised as the champion of Orthodoxy against the heretical doctrine of Arianism.
