Protocol 07/016

Your Eminence, Dear Brother and Concelebrant in the Lord’s Mysteries,

Having been informed of your recent hospitalization, I pray that through the intercessions of the Theotokos and all the Saints, our Lord Jesus Christ visits you at this time. May He guide the doctors and nurses treating you by his all-knowing wisdom and his loving hand, and may you be healed in body and strengthened in soul. The prayers of the bishops, the clergy and the faithful of the Orthodox Church in America are with you, alongside those of their brothers and sisters in the Orthodox Church of Poland.

With intercessions on your behalf and greatest brotherly love, I remain

Sincerely yours in Christ,

+ Tikhon
Archbishop of Washington
Metropolitan of All America and Canada
