To His Holiness Patriarch Porfirije of Serbia,
On behalf of the Georgian Orthodox Church and myself, I warmly congratulate you on your enthronement on the ancient throne of the Serbian Orthodox Church, whose heavenly patron is the great Saint Savvas of Serbia.
May Saint Savvas help you, through His intercession, to serve faithfully God and your country.
We, too, bless you that the Holy Trinity might grant success to you in bearing the Cross of the Patriarch you are entrusted with, which is heavy but honourable, at the same time.
