His Beatitude Ieronymos
Archbishop of Athens and All Greece
Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant,
I cordially greet you with the 10th anniversary of your ascension to the Primatial throne of Archbishops of Athens.
Standing at the helm of the Orthodox Church of Greece in a period of difficulties for the Greek people, you strengthen your flock by the words of paternal consolation and exhortation, showing concern for the success of the clergy and people entrusted to you “in righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness” (1 Tim 6:11).
Prayerfully wishing to Your Beatitude good health, peace, bountiful mercies from the All-Generous God and His almighty help in your lofty and responsible Primatial ministry, I remain
with love in Christ,
PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA
