Patriarch Pavle - as he thought, so he spoke, as he spoke, so he worked. His life was a testimony to the words he spoke. He did so since he has taken the Gospel to be his way of life. His way of thinking can be interpreted in the best way from a conversation he had with a deacon.
Before going to the morning prayer on Banovo Brdo, a deacon who followed the Patriarch asked him how will they go there, and he suggested taking a car.
The patriarch decisively said that they are taking the bus, "Vecernje Novosti" report.
A warm morning is a hint for a hot day. A deacon doesn't want to take the city bus, and he is trying to convince the Patriarch to change his decision.
- There are a lot of people, there is no room in the bus, and it's not really close - he said.
The Patriarch just briefly responded that they are taking the bus, and he started walking, his cane was echoing from the pavement.
- But, your Highness, it's summer, a lot of people are going to the Ada Ciganlija to swim, the busses are full of half-naked people. It's not pleasant - the deacon said an even stronger argument according to him.
The Patriarch stopped and turned for the deacon.
- You know, father, everybody sees what they want to see - the Patriarch Pavle responded.
