Christmas greetings

    Dear compatriots,

    I wish you a Merry Christmas.

    The greatness of this holiday fills our hearts with special spiritual joy, helps us find our way to the church, and highlights the Christian commandments as a moral guideline for the society.

    Eastern Orthodox traditions unite people, help countries and peoples to live in peace and accord.

    This magnificent time reminds everybody about the true value of the family, respect for the elderly, kindness and compassion. In these festive days, millions of Christians do good deeds and take care of other people.

    Dear friends, I cordially wish you strong health, optimism and wellbeing. May the miracle of Christmas support you throughout the year and fill your homes with faith, hope and love.
