His Beatitude Tikhon

Archbishop of Washington

Metropolitan of All America and Canada

Your Beatitude, beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant at God’s Altar!

Please accept my heartfelt congratulations on the commemoration day of your heavenly patron, St. Tikhon, Patriarch of All Russia.

May our merciful Saviour through the intercession of the good shepherd of God’s Church grant you spiritual and physical strength ‘for building up the body of Christ’ (Eph 4:12) in the American land and may He multiply and bless the years of your primatial ministry.

With brotherly love in the Lord,


Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
