Very sad! I visited St Sava's once and it was a magnificent house of God.

The iconostasis

Click the small radio buttons below the photo of the exterior view for glimpses of the interior.

The video shows a fire of incredible magnitude and fury, as would be expected in a temple of this size and design. Prayers for our Serbian Orthodox brethren and thanks be to God that no one was injured or killed!

The photos at the Daily Mail site show the destructive power of the inferno even more graphically.

Many years,

Neil

How incredibly sad frown

Thank God there appear to be no human casualties.

Prayers for the Community there - that they remain strong and overcome their pain and suffering
