“Life would be much better if every person eliminates at least one incorrect habit during one year. Make this a target,” Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia, His Holiness and Beatitude Ilia II said in his Christmas Epistle.
“We easily forgive ourselves something for which we strictly demand answers from others. Most often, we do not see our sins. We should learn to see ourselves from outside, evaluate our activities from the eyes of others, and make objective judgments,” the Patriarch said.
Georgian Orthodox Church celebrates Christmas on January 7.
