Bishop Hilarion congratulates Metropolitan-Elect Jonah

On 12 November 2008, following the election of Bishop Jonah (Paffhausen) as the Archbishop of Washington, Metropolitan of All America and Canada, Bishop Hilarion of Vienna and Austria sent him the following letter:

Your Beatitude, dear Metropolitan-elect Jonah,

It is with special joy that I learned today about your election as the Archbishop of Washington and New York, Metropolitan of All America and Canada. Axios, axios, axios!

From all the extraordinary circumstances surrounding your election it is clear that the Lord’s providence is behind the popular vote which elevated you to the primatial office. Truly, vox populi vox Dei.

I am convinced that under your spiritual guidance the Orthodox Church in America will speedily recover from turbulence and will enter a period of renewal and spiritual prosperity.

I wish you many blessed years and pray to our Lord Jesus Christ for the success of your archpastoral ministry.

UPDATE: Ancient Faith Radio has the first interview with the newly-elected Metropolitan JONAH HERE.
