Our Brothers and Sisters in Georgia

We must pray for our brothers and sisters in Georgia as they undergo a terrible time of trial.

Georgia is overwhelmingly Orthodox Christian, the Church there being one of the very oldest.

I have added the traditional Georgian Cherubic Hymn as an audio file in my profile. A selection of Georgian Orthodox music is available at Chant from the Orthodox Church in Georgia

Listen to the Cherubic Hymn. It is so beautiful that, as I listened to it tears were running down my face. Turn the volume up, turn off the TV and listen to the whole thing. You have never heard anything this beautiful in your entire life I assure you.

Read A Pilgrimage to Orthodox Georgia by Guy Wilson.
