Celebration of the Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul at the Apostolic Nunciature
On the occasion of the Solemnity of the Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul, Patrons of the Church, a Thanksgiving Mass was celebrated at the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Tbilisi. Following the liturgical celebration the Apostolic Nuncio invited clergy and religious to a gathering at the Papal Diplomatic Mission to mark the Solemnity and recognize the generous and selfless work accomplished by them especially during the world health pandemic crisis.
In the prayers of the Latin liturgy of the Church, St. Peter and St. Paul were living witnesses of “authority” and “charisma” who’s example and teachings become pillars of the Church.
On this twentieth anniversary year of the episcopal consecration of H. E. Msgr. Giuseppe Pasotto, Apostolic Administrator of the Latins in the Caucasus, heartfelt expressions of gratitude were offered for his generous service and ministry to the Church. He was consecrated a bishop by St. John Paul II in the year 2000 and over the years, Bishop Pasotto was a guide and inspiration to many. We are blessed with his ministry and offer a heartfelt thank you!
Also in the spirit of the “charisma” of St. Paul, gratitude was expressed to all the Religious Orders who live in their founder’s exemplary way, generously serving the faithful and all those in need. May the good Lord recompense you for your selfless sacrifices offered in the joy and hope of the Lord.
A word of gratitude to the Franciscan Sisters of the Family of Mary, Sr. Barbara and Sr. Lena, who have been serving at the Apostolic Nunciature for the past number of years and will be returning to their Mother House to receive new missions. A word of gratitude from the present Nuncio, his predecessors and collaborators who recognized their generous spirit of service at the Papal Diplomatic Mission in Tbilisi. Thank You.
