Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv and All Ukraine!
Accept my sincere congratulations on behalf of the Roman Catholic bishops of Ukraine for the successful completion of the Unification Council, which took place in Kyiv on December 15, and your election as the Head of the Local Orthodox Church of Ukraine.
May the power and action of the Holy Spirit incessantly shine upon this responsible mission entrusted to you by the Council, may your ministry be constantly supported by the care of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the patronage of the Archangel Michael, the Patron of our Motherland. May your work in God's field bring new fruits of faith, hope and love and God-fearing life of Ukrainian Christians.
I hope for fruitful and friendly cooperation of our Churches for the good of God's affairs among our compatriots and the state.
