Tbilisi: 100,000 Holy Martyrs of Tbilisi


Today was the commemoration of the 100,000 Holy Martyrs of Tbilisi.

Eberle and I met at KGB is Still Watching You cafe, then walked over the glass bridge, then to the Metechi Bridge.
 
Nely had told me the Patriarch and a procession would make their way to the bridge. People would toss flowers into the River Mtkvari in honor of those who died for their Christian faith.

It's a horrific story.

Bitterly cold and windy day for the commemoration. We didn't last long, and left to do some computer work. Four hours later, when we emerged from our meeting, people were only just leaving the bridge.
