Patriarch Ilia urged believers not to be afraid of coronavirus and not to lose heart, because he had a dream that a person could fight this disease.

In his Sunday sermon, the Primate of the Georgian Orthodox Church, Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II of All Georgia, told the flock about his prophetic dream connected with coronavirus he’d had on the eve, Sputnik-Georgia reports.

“The patriarch said that he saw a man of fiery color sitting on a horse, flowing over his head and disappearing,” the publication reports. “Then a child approached him, spat on the ground, mixed his saliva and drew a cross on his forehead with his finger. According to the patriarch, it was a sign that with the help of the Lord and the Cross, a person will be able to defeat this disease.”

The Primate of the Georgian Church urged believers not to be afraid or lose the presence of mind in any case.

“We pay great attention today to those events that have occurred around the world in connection with coronavirus. Whether it comes from God or from evil, I want to tell you one thing that without the Lord this would not have happened. And with the help of the prayer and blessings of the Lord we can overcome this ailment,” said Patriarch Ilia.

Recall that in the framework of the fight against the spread of coronavirus in Italy and Hong Kong, restrictions on public worship were introduced, and more than 300 churches were closed in Mongolia as of March 2.
