Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant at God's Altar,
Please accept my cordial greetings on your Name Day.
Finding inspiration in the selfless life of the Holy Patriarch Tikhon who was the pillar of the Orthodox Church in America (Ikos to the Saint), you devote much effort to encouraging your flock's spiritual growth and strive to be for them a good model in everything.
May the Merciful Lord by the prayers of your heavenly patron grant unto you good health and His unceasing help in your Primatial service.
With brotherly love in Christ,
