Relics of a great Georgian saint, elder Gabriel (Urgebadze), uncovered

Tbilisi, February 24, 2014


On February 22, 2014, in the Georgian town of Mtskheta—the former capital of the early Georgian kingdom of Iberia—a significant event happened at the Samtavro Convent, which Orthodox Christians of Georgia and all over the world had waited with great reverence and love. The holy relics of the great elder and wonder-worker, Blessed Father Gabriel (Urgebadze), fool-for-Christ, were uncovered.


In the middle of the day, in a very organized way, with the help of soldiers, the holy relics as part of a cross procession and in the presence of a great multitude of people were translated to the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, which is known as "the heart of Georgia".


Svetitskhoveli keeps one of the greatest relics of the whole Christian world—the Tunic of Christ. A solemn service is was celebrated there yesterday. On Monday the saint's body will be translated to Tbilisi, to the Holy Trinity Cathedral. The information is continually updated.
