Bishop Irinej of Backa: Only through Christ and in Christ is true communion with God or God-seeing possible. This vision is spiritual, gracious, supernatural, which God gives and which is not possible by any human ability and strength, but only by the gift of God. The culmination of the experience of communion with the Living God here on earth is in the Holy Liturgy, in the Holy Communion, in which – under visible bread and wine we partake of communion, become communicants with Christ Himself and, through Him, with the Holy Trinity.
Bishop Irinej of Backa presided at the Holy hierarchal Liturgy on the feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord, in the Cathedral in Novi Sad, on Wednesday, 6/19 August, 2020. The Bishop was conclebrated by Bishop Isihije of Mohács, priests of the Cathedral and deacons from Novi Sad.
