New Saint from Georgia
« on: July 20, 2011, 08:07:08 AM »
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?  :'(

Saint Anton, pray to God for us petty sinners.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.
