An ancient Virgin Mary relic touched by Jesus and believed responsible for countless miracles arrives in Asia for the first time ever.
The Orthodox Church in Thailand will shortly celebrate its 20th year in Thailand. What better way to honor the occasion then with the first ever visit of the Holy Ark of the Cincture to this nation and then onwards through South East Asia.
Every religion has its holy relics. Many are attributed to both small and great miracles. For the Orthodox Christian Church the 2,000 year old cincture or belt of Mary, the Mother of Jesus is one such precious artifact. The belt is kept in a box. Tradition says the belt or girdle was made by the Virgin Mary herself, out of camelhair and touched by Jesus Christ.
