"I turn now to my children in the British Isles and Ireland with these words: From here, from Antioch, from Saint George’s Monastery, I would like to speak to you all in every Parish in our Archdiocese of The British Isles and Ireland and say that from the moment I was elected Metropolitan, I felt that I have known you for a long time and love you in Christ...
I ask for your prayers, you whom I love, so that the Lord may enable me to lead you securely in His example, to sanctify myself and others, so that His Church is shining, resplendent, full of saints."
