HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS CROWN PRINCE ALEXANDERíS
The great day of the Resurrection of Our Lord is
upon us. The great day, that enlightened the world with joy and gave
the purpose to our existence. The day above all days and the feast
above all feasts. I am joined by my wife Crown Princess Katherine,
sons Hereditary Prince Peter, Prince Philip and Prince Alexander in
wishing that this Holy Day remind us that we are all Godís children
and that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is a call to find within
ourselves what is good, for our sake and for the sake of general
We pray to the Lord to give us strength and
wisdom to overcome all pain and trouble. We pray that we will work
together for the benefit of Serbia and everyone in our country for
todayís and future generations. We pray that during these days, when
the global economic crisis and various natural and human-inflicted
disasters caused by negligence are threatening countries and nations
all over the world, that people who are elected to govern will have
the wisdom, strength and responsibility to envisage and implement
measures of recovery, peace and progress during these difficult
times that are upon us and that eventually await us in the future.
We pray to Lord Resurrected to bless and save our
devastated compatriots in Kosovo and Metohija, and everywhere in the
world where there is suffering, pain, injustice and violence.
Let Easter resurrect in us the noblest virtues
that will make us endure as nation and as people. These are
qualities of love for our neighbours, justice for every wrong, peace
for the troubled, strength for the weak, help for the poor and
needy, and unity to enable us to live and work together.
The resurrection of Jesus offers us a message of
hope, love, and grace. Once again my wife and sons join me to extend
our warmest wishes, and we do so in the very same spirit of Easter.
Christ is Risen!
Indeed, He is Risen!
