Ilyumzhinov congratulates Orthodox Christians on Christmas

With all my heart, I wish you a Merry Christmas! This is a celebration of joy and hope and foreboding of a great miracle. Christmas is a time of purity and light, love for one's neighbour, a time of care for all who need help.

May the soft and gentle light of the Star of Bethlehem illuminate everyone’s path, may it bring hope to the mourners, those who need it so much. May every house be illuminated with a Christmas star, may happiness and love live forever in every home!


May peace and goodness, happiness and prosperity, success and good health come to every home on this bright holiday. Let the guardian angel protect you and your loved ones from troubles, and let faith, peace and grace reign in your soul. I wish you all peace, harmony and good.
