The Patriarch’s Pastoral Letter for the Nativity

From His Beatitude, the Patriarch, John X of Antioch and all the East.

“On this Holy Nativity, our wishes are for each human being to make his or her heart a cave for the King of Glory. We also pray to the newborn Child for you, our beloved children of the Antiochian See in the homeland and abroad, that peace and quietness may abound in your heart, the peace that comes from the Lord of peace, to Whom we give glory and honour forever, Amen.”
