At the central manifestation at Sava Square in Belgrade, near the monument of Stefan Nemanja, His Holiness Porfirije, Serbian Patriarch, President of the Republic of Serbia Mr. Aleksandar Vucic and the Serbian member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Milorad Dodik.

- I pray to God that we will never be moved by petty and selfish passions, against each other, but that we will be one in ourselves, one among ourselves, and that we will build unity with everyone, said the Serbian Patriarch Porfirije, whose sermon we transmit in its entirety:

May we have a happy and blessed holiday of national unity, freedom and the flag!

God created every man and all mankind, in his image and likeness, and God is perfect unity and perfect communion in the love of three Persons: the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. The fact that he created man in his own image and likeness, in fact, means that he called him to live, to the extent possible, the divine way of existence, unity and community of different persons, and to make such a way of life his own reality in time and eternity. .
