Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II of Georgia: Rare Photographs

Yuri Rost | 10 January 2013

This month marks two significant anniversaries in the life of Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II of Georgia, one of the most highly-respected hierarchs in the Orthodox Church today: the 35th anniversary of his enthronement as Patriarch and his 80th birthday. In order to honor His Beatitude’s anniversaries, we offer the following collection of rare photos taken over the years by celebrated photographer and writer Yuri Rost, who has regularly visited Georgia over the past four decades. We thank Yuri Rost for sharing these remarkable photographs with Pravmir, and above all wish His Holiness, Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II of Georgia, Many Years!

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
