Congratulations to Patriarch Kirill on the Name Day
Please accept our cordial congratulations on the Name Day. Your ministerial and educational work for the sake of all the sons and daughters of the Russian Orthodox Church can be treated as the continuation of the great mission of your Patron Saint — Saint Kirill Equal to Apostles.
With your words and deeds you help people of different nationalities, age, professions and beliefs to see the eternal essence in a daily life, to realize the necessity to appeal to the Truth.
Your Holiness! Let me use this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude for your continuous attention to initiatives of the Foundation of St. Andrew the First-Called. It is comforting that many large-scale and significant projects of the Foundation in recent years have been implemented with your blessing and with your active involvement. This fact makes us feel great responsibility. We realize this responsibility when we implement our projects with close collaboration and interaction with the Russian Orthodox Church.
Let me wish you strength, good health and high spirits which are necessary for your Primatial Service.
Seeking the prayers of Your Holiness,
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Foundation of St. Andrew
the First-Called Vladimir I. Yakunin
