We congratulate Your much beloved Eminence and the clergy and laity who surround you, and we greet you with a brotherly kiss and bless you from the depths of our Patriarchal heart, beseeching our God Who is worshipped in Trinity, through the intercessions of His Holy Trophy-Bearer and the prayers of the most sacred Ecumenical Throne, that He might watch over, protect, and sanctify you all, preserving you in His love.
