The relics of St. Mardarije (Uskokovic) were opened on May 5 in the church at St. Sava Monastery in Libertyville, IL, which he himself had built, and where he was buried following his repose in 1935.

St. Mardarije was a Serbian Orthodox bishop who served tirelessly in America to build up the fledgling Church. He was officially proclaimed a saint by the Holy Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church on May 29, 2015, and his glorification ceremony will take place July 14-16, 2017 at St. Sava Monastery.

In this video, Patriarch Irinej of the Serbian Orthodox Church speaks on the life of St. Mardarije, and the great joy of finding his relics incorrupt.

"And we glorify God Who has given to our people, and to all who confess our Lord Jesus Christ, for the blessing and power of the prayers of these saints whom He has glorified. May it be blessed, that they pray in the Holy Spirit, with grace and love for the people, for their prayers are powerful and full of strength. With their presence before the face of God, through their love for us, they support us, they convey our prayers to the Lord, which is a great blessing for all of us … It is a great joy, both for us and for our people, and this joy of the saints is in fact a foundation for the Church of Christ."
