St. Nikolai Day Greetings

Greetings on Feast of St. Nikolai of Mir Likiskije

May this Holy Saint keep you and children close to God and Church.

Today our church has new bishop after hand-laying by Metropolit Volodymyr, new Vicarius for Kyiv: Bishop Oleksandr

Metropolit Volodymyr:

I was searching through the CAF files and encountered this thoughtful greeting of yours.

Thank you, and may the Archangel who is my namesake watch over and protect you and your congregations.

Guide us waking, O Lord,
And Guard us sleeping,
So that Awake, we may watch with Christ,
And Asleep, We may rest in peace

I am sorry it has taken so long to reply.

Your Brother & Servant in Christ, Michael
