To His Eminence
Archbishop KYRILL
of San Francisco and Western America,
Secretary of the Synod of Bishops of the
Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia

Your Eminence, Vladyko

I send you my heartfelt greetings on your namesday, lifting up my fervent prayers to God that He grant you strength, wisdom, many years and that He guide you in fulfilling your noble duties for the sake of preserving the spirit of your predecessors on the Western American cathedra, whom Archbishop Anthony (Medvedev, +2000) of blessed memory called “spiritual giants.”

I prayerfully wish you, the honorable clergymen and God-loving flock entrusted to you many mercies and blessings of God!

With love in the Lord, asking your holy prayers,

+ HILARION,
Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York,
First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia
