Message of the Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II on the occasion of the New Year


"Dear pious people of Armenia, Artsakh and Diaspora,
On the joyous occasion of the New Year, we bring greetings from the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin and our Patriarchal love and blessings to you all. With warm feelings, we send our best wishes to those performing their duties at the place of service at this moment, to the officers and soldiers of our army keeping the native borders unassailable, to those united in prayer in churches, to all our children gathered around the festive tables.
On the eve of the New Year, we express our gratitude to God, Who kept our Homeland and our people around the world peaceful in the past year of 2018, blessed us with goodness, fair merits and achievements in national and church life. We are also thankful to God that due to the patriotic spirit and common sense of our people, the political developments in our country had a peaceful course, and today we welcome 2019 with expectations of positive changes.
Every new year is a new beginning, full of new expectations, striving for something better and more perfect. We associate with the New Year everything that we would like to reform, regulate and soon see the realization of our goals. The demand for reforms and civil zeal that are present in our lives today will undoubtedly bring good results, more care, more effort and striving to strengthen the foundations of the legal state, a just, law-abiding society, to build our country and the entire national life. This is our path, which we must keep constant, always remembering that the development and power of Armenia is the core of the realization of our national ambitions and the condition for the security of Artsakh and the vitality of the Diaspora". 
Happy new year!
