May God grant little Simon many happy and healthy years!!!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Many years!
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Many years to him.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
