If one year ago, at the completion of a decade, I was in Greenland to preach the Gospel of salvation to the Romanians and natives in those distant and frozen lands, this year I am in the midst of the sick and the deprived of freedom in the prisons of Oslo, the capital of Norway. I pray to Saint Ephraim the New to protect and enlighten these brothers of ours, and I bless you all deeply from the depth of the heart!”, Bishop Macarie wrote on the official website of the Eparchy.
