Gifts of the Wise Men in Belarus

One of the oldest Christian relics, the Gifts of the Magi, has been brought to Belarus for the first time. The relic associated with the birth and earthly life of the Savior is kept in 10 special reliquaries. The gold is in the form of 28 pieces of carefully engraved coins, with various shapes, designs and complex artistry. The frankincense and myrrh take the form of beads the size of a small olive. One of the reliquaries travelled to Moscow and St. Petersburg, and on 17 January was brought to Belarus. In Minsk people welcomed the Gifts of the Magi standing on their knees along the road. Thousands of believers came to venerate the Gifts to the Church of Job the Long-Suffering at the Minsk Charity House. The solemn welcome ceremony was led by Metropolitan Pavel of Minsk and Slutsk, Patriarchal Exarch of All Belarus. Video
