MOSCOW, December 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill I has issued a message of greetings to Pope Francis I, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the Evangelical Lutheran Archbishop of Finland, Kari Makinen, the Chair of the Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany, Nikolaus Schneider, and the heads of other non-Orthodox denominations of Christianity marking nativity of Jesus Christ according to the Gregorian calendar.
“I am praying for the bright Christmas joy and heavenly assistance to you in your daily service and for peace and prosperity in your congregations,” Kirill I said.
He urged all the Christians across the world “to raise their voice in prayer and to call on other people to take the path of Christ,” since “the political and economic upheavals, which have accompanied the existence of humanity over centuries upon centuries, have been aggravated by a deep-going crisis of morality that has swept society.
