The birthdate of Bishop Vrtanes Abrahamyan, the Primate of the Artsakh Diocese
His Grace, all the spiritual and secular staff of the diocese warmly congratulate you on this blessed day.
Dear Bishop, being a leader in a homeland that regularly faces disasters and trials is a difficult and responsible task, and being a spiritual leader is even more so. The foundations of preserving the homeland are the Army and the Church, and you, with great wisdom, have wisely combined these two, serving for many years as the spiritual leader of the RA Armed Forces, strengthening and elevating the Nation-Army-Church connection to a high level. Today, as the spiritual father of the whole nation of Artsakh, you strive to keep the spiritual family of Artsakh in love and harmony and provide paternal care to the entrusted flock, for "The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him." (Proverbs 23:24)
Dear Bishop, with our earnest and sincere filial prayers, we ask that the Almighty God grant you good health, fruitful years of service, and joyful life. May your pastoral staff be steadfast and may the Lord grant you long and fruitful leadership years.
May your endeavors be a source of blessing, as it is written in the Holy Scriptures: "The LORD repay you for what you have done, and a full reward be given you by the LORD" (Ruth 2:12).
