His Excellency ENRIQUE PEÑA NIETO
President of the United Mexican States
Dear Mr. President,
Kindly accept my profound condolences over the destructive earthquake in Mexico as a result of which many people have been killed, injured or left without a roof.
In this time of trial for your country, kindly convey my words of support to relatives and loved ones of the victims and wishes of a speedy recovery to the injured and fortitude to all those who have been affected by disaster.
I pray to Merciful God that those who suffer may be healed and those who mourn may find consolation and that the Mexican people may be granted courage and endurance in withstanding the trial fallen to their lot.
With profound compassion,
Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
