Metropolitan Hilarion of Eastern America and New York Sends Nativity Greetings to His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia

To His Holiness
Patriarch KIRILL of Moscow and All Russia

Your Holiness Vladyko!

With all my soul I congratulate you on the endless joy of the Nativity of Christ, declared by the Holy Church to all mankind, with the bright radiance of the miraculous heavenly star, the star of joy and hope, which points us to the path to the Very Sun of Truth, Christ our God, illuminating for us the East on high!

May the Son of God, descended upon the earth, enrich your difficult service with the gift of His Grace, and may He bless, illumine, console and exalt the episcopate, clergy and multimillion-member flock of our dear Mother, the Russian Orthodox Church!

Beseeching your holy prayers and patriarchal blessing for my continuing labors, I remain with steadfast love in the Nascent Christ,

+HILARION,
Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York,
First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad.

Nativity of Christ 2015/2016
