“We celebrate Easter hoping for a new beginning and with faith in a better tomorrow. Regardless of our religion or ethnic background, we should work for the benefit of Serbia and every individual in the country, for the sake of present and future generations. Easter is a time of investment in unity and solidarity, a time for genuine respect and appreciation. I wish the festive spirit of understanding and forgiveness be extended to all citizens of Serbia, regardless of their religion, gender and nationality. Messages at Easter give us comfort to face daily life problems, but also the strength to brave all the difficulties before us, confident in ultimate triumph.
