His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia has sent greetings to His Beatitude Archbishop Anastasios of Tirana and All Albania with his Nameday.

Your Beatitude, beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant:

I wholeheartedly greet You with the commemoration day of Your heavenly patron – St. Anastasios the Persian.

While following this saint’s lead You endeavour to give all Your strength and skills to the consolidation of Holy Orthodoxy in Albania and teach Your flock ‘to contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints’ (Jude 1:3).

I wish Your Beatitude good health, many mercies from the Lord, and His help in Your primatial ministry in future.

With brotherly love in Christ,


Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
