His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia congratulated His Beatitude Archbishop Anastasios of Tirana and All Albania on the anniversary of his enthronement.
HIS BEATITUDE ANASTASIOS
ARCHBISHOP OF TIRANA AND ALL ALBANIA
Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant:
Please accept my heartfelt greetings with the anniversary of your enthronement.
Numerous and manifold are the fruits of your zealous Primatial labours. Having suffered torments at the hands of the theomachist authorities, the Albanian Orthodox Church found in Your Beatitude a wise helmsman and “good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine” (1 Tim 4:6).
Hereby I prayerfully wish you good health, spiritual strength, peace and unceasing help from the Lord in your lofty Primatial service.
With brotherly love in Christ,
PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA
