Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant:
On the commemoration day of the Blessed Jerome of Stridon, I cordially greet you on the occasion of your Name Day.
The intercession of your heavenly patron, the example of his jumble and virtuous life give you strength in bearing the heavy cross of a Primate of the Geek Orthodox Church, helping you to carry out your lofty service with every thoroughness.
I wish Your Beatitude spiritual and physical strength and abundant blessings from He Who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light (Tim. 6:16) and to your God-loving flock I wish peace and prosperity.
With brotherly love in Christ,
Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
