“People today think only of material goods and do not see how low they have fallen spiritually and how unhappy they are, Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II said during his Sunday sermon.
The Catholicos-Patriarch emphasized that the choice of heaven or hell always remains within a person. “Man himself stands to the right or to the left of the Saviour. An evil person, a non-believer, will not stand in the Kingdom of Heaven,” he claimed.
He also noted the importance of aspiration for the future. “A person must properly assess the situation. The past is necessary, but not to see the present and the future is dangerous,” Ilia II is quoted by Georgia Online.
