Icon with particle from Jesus Christ's crown of thorns delivered to Belarus

Several hours ago, the icon with a particle from crown of thorns of Jesus Christ was delivered to Minsk. The shrine was met by Metropolitan Paul at Holy Spirit Cathedral. 

The crown of thorns of the Christ itself is in the Cathedral of Notre Dame. The icon was brought to Belarus by representatives of the World Christian charity fund "Triumph of the heart."

Fedor Morulev, co-chair of the World Christian charity fund "Triumph of the heart":
On the eve of Lent, the shrine arrived in Belarus. After the Holy Spirit Cathedral it will go to the church of Alexander Nevsky. And then it will go to Grodno nunnery and the Zhirovichi male monastery, where there will stay until the Ascension holiday.  

The icon will remain in the Cathedral until February 24, and then it will be transported to the church of Alexander Nevsky where it will stay until the end of April.
