Russian patriarch sends Easter greetings to non-Orthodox church leaders

“As we praise the Lord for His ineffable benevolence for the human race, we will seek to strengthen cooperation between Christians in the name of the triumph of Divine truth, and the assertion in society of lofty evangelical ideals of love, goodwill, mercy, and genuine spiritual and moral values,” a statement from the Moscow Patriarchate quoted Patriarch Kirill as saying in a letter to Pope Francis, Justin Welby Archbishop of Canterbury and Primate of All England and head of the worldwide Anglican Communion, Bishop Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, chairman of the Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany, and other Christian leaders.

“May the All-wise Creator keep you strong in body and spirit,” the patriarch said.
