I cordially greet you on the occasion of the Commemoration Day of your heavenly patron – the Holy and Most Orthodox Prince Daniel of Moscow.
For almost fifteen years you have carried out the lofty and important service of Primate of the Japanese Autonomous Orthodox Church, seeking to continue the missionary work of St. Nicholas Equal-to-the-Apostles, the Enlightener of Japan, and to zealously care for the lot entrusted to you.
I prayerfully wish you spiritual and physical strength from the Author and Finisher of our faith Lord Jesus Christ (cf. Heb. 12:2) in your further work for the glory of His Holy Church.
With love in Christ,
