I want to congratulate Easter to all Christians, day when life symbolically conquered death. Therefore, we should enjoy life itself and all its goodness and beauty, said President Gjorge Ivanov, who attended Sunday the Easter liturgy in “St. Kliment Ohridski” church.

In the year when we celebrate 50th anniversary since the restoration of the Macedonian Orthodox Church – Ohrid Archbishopric we should remember our customs and traditions that enabled us to persist through centuries, Ivanov said.

I wish in this holiday days to remind us to our heritage, to love, to respect and to enjoy life, and to respect what we have, to love, respect and protect the Republic of Macedonia, said Ivanov.

Skopje mayor Koce Trajanovski also attended the liturgy while the priest Dragi Kostadinovski read the Easter message.
