Georgia, Tbilisi, Jan.16 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II will leave for Germany for medical examination at the end of this week. As Patriarchate told Trend, he will stay in Germany for 10 days and will undergo rehabilitation in one of the clinics.
Two years ago, Ilia II underwent surgery on his heart, and therefore doctors recommended him to periodically undergo rehabilitation. In this regard, the patriarch visited Germany last year.
Prior to his departure, on Jan.19, the patriarch will conduct the mass baptism and christen 560 children. So far, Ilia II has more than 10,000 godchildren.
