In all the earth that received thy sayings, thy melody did resound, O righteous father, through which thou didst go about and proclaim, as worthy of God, the nature of creatures, cultivating the character of mankind, O thou of kingly Priesthood, Basil. Wherefore, plead thou with Christ God to save our souls.

Christmas Greetings from Metropolitan Saba of Bosra-Hauran

His Eminence Metropolitan Saba of the Archdiocese of Bosra-Hauran in Syria writes:

Dearest Brother: I am sending to you to share with your Diocese several photos from the children's Christmas pageant at our Church of the Annunciation in Dara'a. Thanks be to God we could give them some joy during these most difficult days in which they are living. I send the photos to you because I know that your love and that of your flock for me and my Archdiocese is great. Many things we can do only because of that love. Please keep us in your prayers and accept my best Christmas wishes.
