MESSAGE OF HIS EMINENCE METROPOLITAN STEPHANOS OF TALLINN AND
these days when we commemorate the coming of our Saviour on
earth we can and we must rejoice and jubilate, because Christ,
the inexhaustible source of Hope and Life, draws us along to
cross with Him the deep abyss that separates the earth and the
heaven, despair and joy, death and Life – the abyss that always
marks our existence during our earthly pilgrimage.
this certitude accompany us all the New Year.
us always to see and receive, even among our daily preoccupations,
the Heavenly Infant, who from the cave of Bethlehem confirms
our conviction and strengthens our faith in the future that
is not one of corruption and non-being, but of fullness of Life.
me wish you from all my heart all the best for the new year
2010 and express you my deepest respect in Christ, Our Lord
