Please accept my cordial congratulations on the anniversary of Your enthronement.
You have been following the Lord Jesus Christ from Your youth, performing monastic deeds and zealously laboring in the vineyard of the holy Polish Orthodox Church.

As chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External Church Relations I am happy to note Your Beatitude’s contribution to the development of traditionally good relations between our Churches.
On this solemn day I prayerfully wish You peace, good health and the invariable God’s help in Your primatial labours.
With reverential love in the Lord,
Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk
