To His Grace Anthony, Bishop of Moravici

Your Grace,

I cordially congratulate you on your 50th birthday.

The Church of the great saint Sava has entrusted Your Grace with the lofty and important service of care for preserving and strengthening the fraternal relations with the Moscow Patriarchate, and it is with distinction that you have carried out this important task for many years.

Sincere love, unanimity and mutual support have distinguished the relationships between the same-faith peoples spiritually nourished by our Churches. These glorious traditions are continued today also through your diligent efforts as rector of the Serbian church representation in Moscow. In recognition of your service, I deem it right to award you the Russian Orthodox Church’s Oder of St. Alexis, Metropolitan of Moscow, Third Degree.

I prayerfully wish you the abundance of spiritual gifts, sound health and inexhaustible help of God for many years of peaceful and blessed archpastoral ministry.

With love in the Lord,

+KIRILL, PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA
