The radiant feast of the Birth of the Lord God and our Savior Jesus Christ has come — I congratulate you on this great celebration!
“Christ came into the world and sacrificed Himself in order to return people to that blissful state in which our forefathers were before, in order to soften morals, to elevate people spiritually. He came to change earthly life into heavenly life, to make people a “holy people”, a “royal ordination” and thereby establish His Kingdom on earth”.
