On the occasion of your election to the patriarchal throne, on behalf of the Serb people from the Republic of Srpska and on my own behalf, I extend congratulations to you with sincere wishes that you do everything in your power for the benefit of the Church and the people.

I am convinced that the Orthodox believers have received a worthy successor of the blessed Patriarch Irinej and that, with your wisdom and open approach, you will successfully lead the Orthodox people.

The Serbian Orthodox Church has always been with its religiuos people, their reliable spiritual and moral support, and has passed through various temptations with dignity.

In the belief that you will perform the honorable duty entrusted to you with dignity and conscientiousness and continue to strengthen the unity of the Serbian Orthodox Church and be a strong protector and guardian of our tradition and identity, I cordially greet you”, said the President Cvijanović.
