Due to the tragedy in Batumi, where nine people died during the collapse of the entrance of a multi-storey building, there will be no festive events in Mtskheta

TBILISI, Oct. 14 – Sputnik. Georgia On October 14, a large religious holiday is celebrated – Mtskhetoba-Svetitskhovloba, dedicated to the Chiton of the Lord and the Life-Giving Pillar, exuding miraculous myrrh.

October 14 is a non-working day in Georgia.

Traditionally, the epicenter of the celebration on this day is the ancient capital of Georgia Mtskheta and the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, where believers from all over the country begin to gather in the early morning.

However, due to the tragedy in Batumi, where nine people died during the collapse of the entrance of a multi-storey building, there will be no festive events in Mtskheta.

The Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II has already congratulated the believers.

“Svetitskhovloba is the biggest holiday. It is no coincidence that Svetitskhovloba and Mtskhetoba are one day. I remember the past years, when there was a communist regime, and the Georgian Church and the Georgian people experienced many hardships, but your work is wonderful, Lord! We thank the Lord for that we went through this test and many sorrows turned into joy. May Heavenly Father not deprive you and Georgia of joy, “the Patriarch’s message to believers says.

He also reminded believers of the need to appreciate the mercy of God and man.

“God really gave us mercy, and we should support this mercy, we should value it. We should value the person, we should support it, and in this case you will achieve great success,” the message says.

The holiday of Svetitskhovloba is celebrated in Georgia twice: on October 14, on this day, it falls on the feast of the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos, and on July 13, as Christendom celebrates on this day the Cathedral of the Glorious and All-Valiant Twelve Apostles, to whom the Mtskheta Temple is also dedicated.
