Dear Brother and Concelebrant beloved in the Lord:
From the bottom of my heart I greet you on this Day of the Holy Prophet Daniel.
Teaching your clergy and flock to fight the good fight of the faith and take hold of the eternal life (1 Tim. 6:12), you with paternal love take care of the welfare of the Orthodox people of Romania and introduce those who are in the dark to the Gospel’s truth.
Through the intercession of your heavenly patron saint, may generous God help you in your further work for the benefit of the Holy Church, keeping you in spiritual and physical fortitude for many good years.
With brotherly love in Christ,
Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
