Sua Santidade o Patriarca Irineij publicou a Enciclica Pascal, subscrita por todos os santos varões que integram o Sínodo da Santa Igreja Mártir da Sérvia. No extenso e magnífico texto, ousamos sublinhar:
"Selfishness and lack of integrity today – as they did yesterday, as they will tomorrow – are destroying every real communion, common good and possession. Lack of trust, greed, love of power, violence, and stealing afflict personhood and its God-given freedom. That selfishness, greediness and violence are that much greater if a man has not opened up his eyes to see his eternal dignity and the eternal expanse and view of his being – inasmuch as he is attached to earthly and transient treasure."
