Assumption of the Virgin Mary celebrated today in Georgia

2009-08-28 13:09

Today the Georgian Orthodox Church celebrates Mariamoba, the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, one of the 12 main holidays of the year. In Georgia that day is declared a non-working one.


In the morning Ilia II, the Catholicos Patriarch of all Georgia, served a sermon in Sioni Cathedral in Tbilisi, founded in the honour of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary - the Patriarchy.

The holiday service will be held in all the acting churches of the country - Novosti-Gruzia.

The Assumption of the Virgin Mary is the second most important holiday after the Resurrection.

This day is preceded with one of the 4 many-day fasts: Assumption fast. It was established to imitation of Mother of God, who all her life, and especially before the Assumption, spent in fasting and prayers.
