The Georgian Community of Constantinople, led by the Archimandrite of the Ecumenical Throne, Father Ilia Jinjolava, visited the Phanar on Tuesday, May 3, and met with the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.
The Patriarch welcomed with great affection the representatives of the Georgian Community and especially the young children, to whom he spoke with paternal affection.
The Patriarch said: “I love you, not only because you are our children, but mainly because you are Georgian. We value and love Georgia. We will continue to support and take care of you.”
