Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant:
I cordially congratulate you on another anniversary of your enthronement.
May Christ the Savior Who has installed you at the helm of the church boat preserve you in good health and peace and may He multiply the days and years of your life.
I prayerfully wish Your Beatitude physical strength, many blessings from God and His generous help in your further service at the high and important post of Primate of the Albanian Orthodox Church.
With brotherly love in the Lord,
PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA
