Belgrade litany

Thousands of people gathered in Belgrade on 25th May, for a Spasovdan litiyá that passed through the central streets. During the litiyá a memorial service was held for the victims of recent mass shootings in Serbia.

For this occasion, a coffin was brought to Belgrade with the remains of Bishop Nikolaj Velimirović. He was declared a saint by the Serbian Orthodox Church two decades ago, despite critics pointing out his anti-Semitic and anti-Western views.
