Patriarch Kirill greets Primate of the Albanian Orthodox Church on the day of his patron saint

Your Beatitude,

Dear Brother and Concelebrant beloved in the Lord:

I cordially greet you on the occasion of your Name Day!

In performing your lofty primatial ministry, you seek to emulate the virtuous life and spiritual feat of your Heavenly Patron – the Venerable Martyr Anastasius the Persian. Strengthened by prayer and God’s grace, you teach your flock to keep growing in the faith and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (cf. 2 Pet. 3:18).

I wish Your Beatitude the abundance of spiritual and physical resources, peace and blessings from the All-Merciful Lord in your further primatial service for the good of the holy Albanian Orthodox Church.

With love in the Lord,

+ KIRILL

Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
