- Pastoral Letter on the Occasion of the Nativity of our Lord, 2011

 

„The Birth of the Son of God is a universal event, which gives a new dimension to man’s life of communion with God and to the relationship with the historical reality. Because of this, the mystery of Christmas becomes the center of the world and of the spiritual life, of salvation and of our Orthodox spirituality.” (His Eminence Irineu, Metropolitan of Oltenia)
