“On this festive day, we offer our prayers and gratitude to the Lord for the gift of your life, your sacred ministry, and for all the gifts He so abundantly bestowed upon you and which you have generously multiplied during your devoted service to God and the Church,” the greeting reads.

The Head of the UGCC remarked that for many years, especially during this brutal war, Bishop Teodor has been exemplifying the qualities of a good shepherd who lays down his soul for his flock.

“You accompany your episcopal ministry with a deeply spiritual, ascetic life and scholarly pursuits. The clergy and laymen of our Church revere you as a good father and a zealous preacher of the word of God,” the letter of congratulations reads.
