Your Beatitude,

Please accept my heartfelt greetings with the anniversary of your Patriarchal enthronement.

Your Beatitude’s “work of faith, and labour of love” (1 Thess 1:3) in the daily exploit of your selfless Primatial ministry inspire and strengthen the faithful children of the Romanian Church on the paths of the Christian life.

On this day of celebration I prayerfully wish you peace, bodily strength and help from above in your cares for the welfare of your flock.

With respectful love in Christ,


Metropolitan of Volokolamsk
