II. Holy Synod heard a presentation about life and deeds of Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia Anthon II (Bagrationi) and decided to:

Consecrate Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia Anton II to saint and call him Lamentation Martyred Anton II Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia. His Tribute Day is on 3rd of January / 21st of December (church calendar); also to write icon and proper Divine Service particles.

Saint Anton, pray for us!

According to Wikipedia he died in 1811. This was the same year Russia took over the Church of Georgia and suppressed Georgian forms of worship. Was St. Anton martyred at the hands of his fellow Orthodox?  :'(
