By the Grace of God Orthodox Bishop of Western AmericaGrace, Peace and Mercy from the God-Child Christ the Savior
Dear Brothers and Sisters i nthe Lord,
By God's miraculous dispensation, we celebrate again this year "The Great Mystery of God's goodness," the manifestation in the flesh of God the Logos, the Angel of the Great Council, the God-man Christ.
On the occasion of this exceptional Day and Feast, we greet you all with our paternal love, wholeheartedly offering our prayerful wishes and blessings for your love, help and support of God's Church in our Diocese. We pray to the Prince of peace to cease the wars and bring peace to the whole world; that He grant wisdom to all those who live in delusion of sin and that He vouchsafe our Church from indignity.
We wish you, dear spiritual Children, Brothers, and Sisters that you may celebrate these holy days of our Lord's Epiphany in joy, and peace under God's protection, by the intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos and all the saints.
May the grace and overflowing mercy of Jesus Christ, born in the cave and laid in a manger, be with you all!
PEACE FROM GOD - CHRIST IS BORN!May the New Year
of our Lord 2014 Be Blessed!
In the New Born Christ-Child, our Savior,
Bishop of Western America
