Sacred Ark with the Cincture of the Mother of God comes to Thailand and Southeast Asia for the first time

In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand, H.H. Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia has blessed the Sacred Ark (reliquary) which contains the Cincture of the Mother of God to be exposed for veneration in Thailand so that not only the Orthodox Christians, but also all interested Thais and others can behold this significant and cherished relic of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

 The beautifully ornate reliquary with the Cincture is exposed mainly in churches in Russia, and commands long queues of people wishing to touch it, often 3–4 hours long, because of the healing power of the Cincture.
