Isaiah the most-reverend and God-chosen Metropolitan of the Holy Metropolis of Denver, our father and chief shepherd: many years to him.
Ἠσαΐου, τοῦ Σεβασμιωτάτου καὶ Θεοπροβλήτου Μητροπολίτου τῆς Ἁγιωτάτης Μητροπόλεως Ντένβερ, ἡμῶν δὲ Πατρὸς καὶ Ποιμενάρχου, πολλὰ τὰ ἔτι.
"The Divine Grace, which always heals that which is weak, and completes that which is wanting, elevates through the laying-on of hands the most devout Deacon to be a Presbyter. Wherefore, let us pray for him, that the Grace of the All Holy Spirit may come upon him."
