Overwhelmed by the sanctity of the received greetings upon the anniversary of my consecration, by which I was blessed by the Providence of Almighty God, I utter the words written centuries past by the Apostle Paul to his disciple Timothy: “I thank Him who has given me the strength for this, Christ Jesus our Lord because he judged me faithful by appointing me to His service… to Him, the King of the Ages, immortal, invisible, the only God be honor and glory for ever and ever.” (1 Timothy 1: 12, 17).
