Metropolitan PHILIP Congratulates His Holiness KIRILL on His Election as Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
His Eminence Metropolitan PHILIP has written the newly elected Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia to congratulate him on his elevation. His Eminence writes in part:
"I have no doubt from our personal meetings and from your writings that you are a firm believer that the Orthodox Church cannot live in an ivory tower, but must reach out to the poor and needy and address the brokenness that exists throughout the entire world; a brokenness that only our Lord Jesus Christ can mend."
