Thursday, 28 September 2006 - A letter of Aspiration to Msgr. Raphael Minassian, Director of “Voice of Freedom Of Armenia”
With great joy, We were informed about the celebrations that took place in the Levonian Pontifical school on the occasion of the 1st year anniversary of the foundation of the Armenian Telepace.
The aim of this channel is to preach the Word of God among the Armenian societies to preserve their loyalty specially that of Our youth’s in the faith of the Illuminator.
Today, We have the great honor to announce that Msgr. Raphael Minassian was able to perform this individual task through his great faith, incessant efforts and effervescent vigor.
By doing this, he executed God’s commandment “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations” (Mathew 28:19) and “What I tell you in the dark, speak in daylight; what is whispered in the ear, proclaim from the roofs” (Mathew 10:27).The rooftop from where the diligent priest spread the Light of the Bible became the Catholic channel, Telepace, with the help of Monsignor Guido Todeschini, the founder and president of Telepace towards whom we direct Our paternal appreciation.
Through this patriarchal letter, We congratulate and salute the Monsignor for the service that he has offered for the past twelve months wishing that he continues this consecrated mission for the sake of Armenians all over the world.
Our Paternal Blessing,
Nerses Bedros XIX Catholicos Patriarch of Cilicia of the Armenian Catholics
