Belgrade-Serbia: During his visit to the Decani Monastery Patriarch Porfirije commented that “Every time we come to this land, we deeply know that we have returned to our homeland. This holy Gracanica testifies to that, Decani, the Pec Patriarchate and the Mother of God of Ljevis testify. So many shrines testify that this is our home. We also see the Albanian brothers as our brothers. I am sure that we can not only understand each other but also live together, grow and build”.
The Patrirach also stated that “Kosovo and Metohija is the land where we were born, born for Christ and, of course, gained a lot of what others can’t or won’t understand. Gracanica and the holy sites we have listed are the world cultural heritage, but, brothers and sisters, the world as such does not exist if it does not have its own name and surname”.
