With all my heart I thank all of you in Mariukirkjan for the overwhelming gift you have given me on the occasion of my 80th birtday. I was given the wise advice to sit in a solid chair when I would open the gift. That was very good advice. However, I thank you even more for the affection and appreciation, your gift expresses. It greatly warms my heart. God has blessed me by giving you to me as my fellow travelers on the road to sanctity and salvation in Christ, by giving me the ministry of being your parish priest for the past nine years.
May God, our loving and caring Father in Heaven, bless each and every one of you and fill you with the fullness of Himself.
I wish all a joy-filled and pleasant summer, and I’m looking forward to again being with you in August.
