These days, with the help of God, I am in Norway among the Romanians in Molde, Ålesund and their surroundings. With great devotion I reunited with our spiritual sons and friends from these lands, with whom we sat in dialogue and spiritual counsel and which we bravely embraced in the joy of the Romanian carols, filling us with grace at the Divine Liturgy. On Christmas, many Romanians from these places returned to the home country. And us, those who are still here for the Holidays, away from our native places, feel the need to find ourselves together in the church and in the spiritual fraternity.
Your pleadingly parent and brother,
