To the Very Reverend and Reverend Fathers, Deacons and beloved people of our God-protected Archdiocese,
The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be upon you all.
In August I underwent surgery in my right ear. By the grace of God and your loving prayers the surgery was a success but, under the advice of my doctors, I have had to rest for two months. During this time you have all remained in my prayers. Little by little, my strength has returned and I am much better. I can now resume more fully my duties within our Archdiocese.
I invoke the blessings of the All-holy Trinity on all of you.
Metropolitan of the British Isles and Ireland
