The relics of St. Cyril and St. Methodius are already in the Gigintsi Monastery in Bulgaria, it was reported. Tomorrow, they will be brought with a liturgical procession to the St. Nedelya church in Sofia, where believers would be able to bow to the holy relics. The reliquary contains a part of the hand of St. Cyril and two pieces of the ribs of St. Methodius.

The relics of the holy brothers come to Bulgaria for the first time. In the 1980s, they were returned by the Roman Catholic Church to the Archdiocese of Thessaloniki and have been preserved in the Esphigmenou monastery in Mount Athos. Archimandrite Bartholomew accompanies the relics that arrive in Bulgaria at the invitation of Patriarch Neophyte.
