Serbia Press Review - May 24, 2013
An initiative to have Petar Petrovic Njegos canonized has been withdrawn
from procedure and the Assembly of the Serbian Orthodox Church will not
involve itself with that topic, said Church spokesperson Bishop Irinej
of Backa on May 23. The initiative to proclaim Njegos a saint was
submitted by the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Littoral, and was
presented at the Assembly by Metropolitan Amfilohije.
