Everything will settle down in the Diocese of Raška and Prizren, said Bishop Atanasije and urged the faithful "not to listen to people who mislead".

Bishop Atanasije, the administrator of the Diocese of Raška and Prizren, attended the liturgy served this morning (Feb. 19) in the church of St. Demetrius in the northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica and urged the faithful "not to listen to people who mislead”, transmitted Tanjug news agency.

"Do not listen to people who mislead. Bishop Artemije listened, but it seems that those who did not listen to him before but misused him have escaped from his obedience," said Atanasije.

He added that the situation in the Diocese of Raška and Prizren will calm down and that everything would settle down, reminding that "the people who have taken profit of the troubles of our people and our Church are already gone, that is, they have run away."

Bishop Atanasije expressed his satisfaction with the large number of children who attended the liturgy, calling on their parents to raise them properly.
