Metropolitan Tikhon’s address to the faithful

The address was recorded on Monday, November 26, 2012 at the OCA Chancery in Syosset, NY.

"I have chosen to first address you in this direct way because it is important for Christians to communicate with one another with honesty and with clarity," Metropolitan Tikhon said in his introductory remarks. "The medium of our communication is never as important as the message but, in this age of multimedia, it is good for us to make sure that our message is always a simple one, coming from a heart that is as free from passions as possible. I ask for your help in this so that all of us together might make the effort to purify our hearts, to pray for one another and to work together to communicate the glad tidings of salvation to the world around us."
