THE PRESIDENT of United Serbia and MP Dragan Markovic Palma talked with the Abbot of this monastery, Methodius, in the Hilandar monastery.
– Many churches and monasteries are architecturally similar, but the Hilandar monastery is the only one that has something that lives for over 800 years, and that is the lineage of Saint Simeon, which still helps families who could not have children. Every foot of Hilandar is sacred and there is a positive pressure in the air and our task is to appeal to every Serb to fulfill what Saint Sava said, and that is to come to Hilandar at least once in his life. And that is why we are all Savina – said the President of United Serbia Dragan Markovic Palma on Hilandar.
Markovic thanked the abbot of the Hilandar monastery for the reception and said that Orthodox and family values must be preserved.
– We advocate for the family to be alive and healthy, for people to live from their work and to protect our Serbian Orthodox Church. We are also honored as members of the Assembly of Serbia in this convocation for voting on the Law on Hilandar, which institutionalized this monastery. If some non-governmental organizations received money from the budget of Serbia, and they worked to the detriment of the citizens of Serbia, we are proud that our holy monastery Hilandar is now on the state budget. Before, Father Abbot, you had moral support, but now you have both moral and material support – said Markovic in a conversation with Abbot Methodius and emphasized that the spiritual task of all of us is to fight even more for what is a Serbian tradition.
Markovic conveyed the greetings of the President of the Republic of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, and the President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia, Ivica Dačić, to Abbot Metodija.
METHODS: THANK YOU TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE SERBIAN ASSEMBLY
– Since there are 6 deputies from the Assembly of Serbia in this delegation, this is also an opportunity to thank all deputies of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia who voted for the Law on Protection of the Heritage of the Holy Monastery of Hilandar – said Metodije.
– Preservation of family values is important, regardless of the fact that monks serve the family and God in a different way. Just as the lineage of Saint Simeon from Hilandar helps in giving birth to children, we in the Hilandar monastery keep the church tradition that family values are the most important. And we hope that God’s way will win – the abbot of the monastery Hilandar Metodije pointed out.
Apart from Markovic, the Serbian delegation also visited the Hilandar monastery, including the deputies of United Serbia, Zivota Starcevic, Vojislav Vujic, Djordje Kosanic, Nenad Filipovic and Slavenko Unkovic. The delegation also included the head of the Pomoravski district, Goran Milosavljevic, the commissioner of the Hilandar monastery for Serbia, Milos Stojkovic, doctors, businessmen and athletes.
