Serbian Orthodox Church Bishop Amfilohije's funeral in Podgorica was attended by a huge crowd outside the church and by numerous state officials, including visiting Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and BiH Presidency member Milorad Dodik.

The funeral service was led by the senior Serbian Orthodox Church cleric, Patriarch Irinej, with numerous bishops at the Ascension of Christ church in the Montenegrin capital. Amfilohije's remains were interred in the crypt of that church.

Patriarch Irinej said that Metropolitan Amfilohije found people alienated from the faith and empty monasteries when he took over the post and went on to renew what was once abandoned.

"With his death, he leaves behind a void, especially for solving the problem of the church here in Montenegro," said Irinej.

Montenegro's Prime Minister Designate Zdravko Krivokapic called Amfiholije’s death a major loss, while the head of Montenegro’s Parliament, Aleksa Becic, called the Bishop one of the greatest spiritual leaders and theologists of our time.
