Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus!
God willing, we will be in Christmas Time tomorrow and accept New Year of the Lord soon – two thousand and twenty three. What will it bring to us we do not know yet. What it brought this year AD 2022 to us? When we look at our The Anglocatholic Church, then we are thankful to God, that from His Mercy and Grace we still minister in this world in 28 countries in 126 parishes or missions with 32 Bishops, 175 Priests and 74 Deacons – total 281 clergymen – with 29,885 faithful Christians in eleven Archdioceses and Sixteen Dioceses.
Lord Jesus Christ is faithful! In my this Christmas Message I want you to read Romans Chapter 16, written by Saint Paul the Apostle. These are personal greetings! Let us send personal greetings to our Clergy and Laity as much we can during this Christmas season! Let us pray that the Russian genocide in Ukraine will stop and there will be really “peace on earth” in Europe and around the world.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BLESSED NEW YEAR OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST 2023 TO YOU ALL!
Pax et bonum!
Ego Patriarcha H.
My dear Archbishops, Bishops, Priests, Deacons, Subdeacons, men and women religious, my brothers and sisters in the Lord.
I send you all my best wishes for peace and prosperity for the Feast of Nativity.
May the Lord, born in stable as the poorest among the poor out of love for us and our salvation, fill you with abundant graces and grant you peace, joy, health, and the will to carry out your mission with constancy and perseverance in service of oy holy Anglocatholic Church.
Be the radiant witnesses of your faith, your love of God, in these difficult times and moments when the church is too often replaced by the pagan fest which fills the pockets of merchants of illusions in a world where sects and islam are advancing rapidly, let us unite and pray for each other.
May your commitment to the Anglocatholic Church be constant and unfailing. I humbly commend myself, the clergy of the whole world and the faithful in Africa to your prayers.
With my prayers and and my Apostolic Blessing.
