MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS KAREKIN II ON
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
(March 8, 2018)
From the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, We extend our pontifical love, blessings, and congratulations to our mothers, sisters, and daughters on the occasion of March 8.
This significant event is another occasion to reassess the indispensable role of women, mothers, sisters, and daughters in our people's lives. Throughout ages, the Armenian woman has inspired and encouraged our brave sons to fight with courage for the protection of our homeland, our cherished families, national and spiritual sanctuaries.
Dear women, Our wish is that you remain unwavering and firm in your perfect virtues of love and devotion, because these gifts are the source of happiness, creativity, and a progressive life; and the guarantee of existence - the family, nation and state.
We wish new successes to your cherished efforts and accomplishment of your kind desires in your family, national, and state life.
We pray that Almighty God protect all women under His Holy Right Hand, grant a peaceful and secure family life, boundless happiness, and endless joy.
May the grace of Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the sanctity of the Holy Spirit be with you now and forever.
