His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia congratulated His Beatitude Metropolitan Sawa of Warsaw and All Poland on his Nameday by sending the following greeting:

Your Beatitude,

Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant:

I wholeheartedly congratulate you on your Nameday.

You try to model yourself on the example of your heavenly patron, St. Sawa of Serbia, and as “the good shepherd” (Jn 10:11) and father care for the people of God, diligently enlightening the contemporaries with the light of Christ’s truth.

I wish Your Beatitude “all joy and peace in believing” (Rom 15:13), gracious physical strength and abundant God’s help in your primatial ministry.

With warm recollections of our recent fraternal meeting in Moscow,

+ KIRILL

PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA
