Pilgrims from Bashkortostan will go to the peak of Athos


Christian believers from Bashkortostan will go on a pilgrimage to the Holy Peak of Athos to the west of Greece. The trip is organized by the Ufa Eparchy's pilgrimage service and will last from October 26 to November 2.

Christian believers all over the world revere Athos as one of four Godmother's principalities – the holy lands, found under special patronage of Godmother. Together with Athos Iberia in Georgia, Kiev-Pecherskaya Laura and Seraph-Dievsky monastery in Russia are considered such principalities. The Godmother's Belt, kept in Athos, is considered the main sacred object. According to the legend this belt had once belonged to the Virgin Mary.
