President Stevo Pendarovski, on the occasion of the great Christian holiday of Epiphany, sent a congratulation message to all citizens who celebrate the holiday according to the Julian calendar and to the Head of the Macedonian Orthodox Church – Ohrid Archdiocese, Metropolitan of Skopje, Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia and Justiniana Prima, H.H. Stefan.
Dear fellow citizens,
It gives me particular pleasure and honor to congratulate you on the great Christian holiday of Epiphany and wish you sincerely good health, joy, happiness and prosperity.
The act of throwing the holy cross will gather us by the Macedonian waters this year to witness the appearance of God together and fill our hearts with hope and faith.
Let the symbolism of purified waters be a motive for spiritual purification and inspiration for good deeds.
May we cultivate understanding, harmony and generosity, constantly giving love, care and attention.
Happy and eternal feast of Epiphany!
God has appeared!
