The Serbian Orthodox Church has decided not to extend an invitation to Pope Benedict XVI to attend celebrations marking the 1700th anniversary of the Edict of Milan, which will take place in Nis in 2013...

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

Good question. And, more specifically, I wonder who is invited. Some OOs? Some ECs? Some LCs (not including the Pope)? Some Protestants?

The fact that he did not invite the Pope does not mean that he did not invite any representatives of the Catholic Church.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

being a bishop of the Catholic Church, why would the Patriarch of Serbia invite any representative of the Catholic Church?

Were the Vatican's bishops in Serbia invited?

Is the Vatican doing anything at Milan?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

The local muezzin, I guess.
She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.
