OCCzLS Primate to ROC Patriarch: The Primate's ministry is tireless labors

His Beatitude Metropolitan Rostislav believes that the Primate must be "made all things to all men" so that he "might by all means save some."

On February 1, 2022, His Beatitude Metropolitan Rostislav of the Czech Lands and Slovakia congratulated His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Rus on the thirteenth anniversary of his enthronement, the DECR ROC website reports.

“The ministry of the Primate is tireless work and constant worries. According to the word of the St. Apostle Paul, he must be ‘made all things to all men’ (1 Cor. 9:22), so that he ‘might by all means save some’ in his sacrificial ministry,” wrote the Primate of the Orthodox Church of the Czech Republic and the Lands of Slovakia.

According to him, Patriarch Kirill performs "this feat of love with the utmost dedication to the Russian Orthodox Church, Her faithful children and all those who seek Christ's consolation."

His Beatitude Metropolitan Rostislav wished the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church "a long life, the strength of the Primate's forces and the blessed help of God in his unceasing labors."

Earlier, the UOJ wrote that His Holiness Patriarch Kirill was congratulated on the enthronement day by Catholicos-Patriarch of Georgia Ilia, the Primate of the UOC Metropolitan Onuphry and Patriarch Porfirije of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
