On the 23rd anniversary of Your Eminence’s archpastoral ordainment, let us cordially congratulate You and wish you all the best!
For over two decades You have been holding with honor the arch-pastoral crozier, pasturing on the way of salvation, with much wisdom and love, the faithful flock that was entrusted to Your Eminence.
During this time, the clergymen and the lay members of the Orthodox Church of Moldova have come to love You as a rightful, consequent, and kind spiritual father, who never spares own forces to enlighten and support spiritual children.
Thus, on this holiday, we pray to our All-Merciful Lord and His Most Pure Theotokos, to maintain You many years ahead at the helm of the vessel of our ancestral Church, guarding You from danger and temptations, helping You to continue Your blessed work, for the perseverance of our nation, preaching the Word of Gospel.
Ispola Eti Despota,
Long live, Your Eminence!
With sonly obedience and high appreciation,
Staff of the Metropolitan Administration
