Metropolitan-Bishop of Montenegro: ‘I pray to God for the govt to recover from worst virus plaguing our country – atheism’
The Orthodox Church in Montenegro on Thursday venerated the memory of St. John the Divine. The Metropolitan-Bishop of Montenegro and the Littoral, His Eminence Amphilochios, officiated at a Divine Liturgy at the same-name cathedral of Poprad.
In commenting on the tense situation in the small Adriatic country over the past few months, with the Church pointing directly to state persecution against it and its hierarchs, Amphilochios said the current government has chosen a desperate path, with its actions taking it farther and farther from the path of Christ.
He said, “…I pray to God for the Montenegrin government to recover from the worst virus that is plaguing our country, that of atheism.»
