The congratulation sent by His Beatitude Rostislav, Metropolitan of the Czech Lands and Slovakia, to His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on his 75th birthday.

His Holiness Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia

Your Holiness, Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant, 

All these years you have served God and people with good conscience and by your noble life brought to the truth those who wallow in delusion (St John Chrysostom 47. 58), giving a dignified example to all of us. 

With invariable warmth do I remember our meetings and joint celebrations in the course of our visits to the fold of the Russian Orthodox Church. Your interest in the life of our Local Church and continued concern for the needs of our Representation in Moscow - all this echoes with gratitude in my heart. 

On this joyful day, I prayerfully wish Your Holiness physical strength, many years of life and God’s inexhaustible help in your Primatial work. 

With brotherly love in the Lord, 

+ Rostislav, Archbishop of Presov, Metropolitan of the Czech Lands and Slovakia
