Mother of God Belt arrives in Moscow (+ 80 photos + video)

admin | 20 November 2011

One of the most revered Christian shrines, the Belt of the Holy Mother of God has finally arrived at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. More than 40 thousand believers welcome the relict. The service was conducted by the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill.
People started queueing the day before and those who were able to enter the cathedral are absolutely happy now.
The belt was brought from the Vatopedi monastery on Mount Athos in Greece. More than two million believers have come to bow to the Belt of the Holy Mother of God since it was brought to Russia from Mount Athos a month ago.
