Congratulations from his Holiness Mor Ignatius Ephrem II
Dear blessed spiritual son, Mr. Pierre Gergi and the team of the Syriac School,
After presenting you the blessing of Jesus and good will supplications, we say:
We are very happy about your launching of the "Syriac School" website, which offers the opportunity to teach the Syriac language to those who wish to learn more about this language, to learn its grammar, to immerse themselves in the richness of its vocabulary, and to open up through this learning to the rich Syriac literary heritage.
We congratulate you for equipping the school with an interactive teaching method in line with modern European systems and through the use of distance learning methods.
We bless your work, wishing you success in your effort to spread the Syriac language and culture, asking God to reward your efforts as well as your hard work and give you health and well-being.
Grace be with you.
Ignatius Ephrem II
Patriarch of Antioch and the rest of the East
