The Head of the House of Romanoff congratulates His Grace Bishop Nazarii of Kronstadt, Abbot of Holy Trinity-St. Alexander Nevsky Lavra in St. Petersburg




To His Grace Bishop Nazarii

of Kronstadt


Your Grace,


I send my heartfelt congratulations to you and the monks of the Holy Trinity-St. Alexander Nevsky Lavra on the 20th anniversary of the revival of this important monastic community.

You were present at the rebirth of this holy monastery, founded by my royal ancestor, Emperor Peter the Great, and which bears the name of one of the most important Heavenly intercessors of Russia, the Holy Venerable Grand Prince Alexander Nevsky.

With all my heart, I pray that God will bless all your holy endeavors and grant you success in your efforts to restore the church on the territory of the Lavra to all its former magnificent glory.

My son and heir, Grand Duke George of Russia, likewise sends his congratulations and greetings to you all.  And we both also congratulate you on your Name Day.

Yours, faithfully and devotedly,


H.I.H. the Grand Duchess Maria of Russia
