A film on Patriarch Ilia II released (in Russian)

Moscow, April 13, 2015

A film by the Neofit TV studio entitled, “Patriarch Ilia II” has been released, reports Geomigrant.


The annotation about the film reads: “He has been primate of the Georgian Orthodox Church for 37 years now. Any believer may call on him for prayer and a piece of advice, and homeless people find their refuge right in the office of the Patriarchate. He visits prisons and arranges free dinners for the destitute. The third child in every Georgian family becomes a godchild of Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II; he has already 14,000 of them. Houses and offices are decorated with his portraits, each Georgian family proposes a toast to his health at every party. For modern Georgia he has become someone like a real Biblical patriarch. In this film, prominent cultural figures of Georgia: female singer Nani Bregvadze, ballet dancer Nino Ananiashvili, actor Kakhi Kavsadze, and theatrical actor Nodar Mgaloblishvili talk about the role Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II has played in their lives”.
