Today if asked, many Armenians might even have hard time remembering they were once a pagan nation believing in various Gods and superstitions. That means one thing – Armenians have been a Christian nation for a very long time now. Nobody can say that Armenia was willingly converted to monotheism, but after having considered all the teachings of the Bible, more precisely God, Armenians, taken as a whole, have never betrayed their religion and their God. That’s one peculiarity that describes Armenian people, and not in vain being a small nation, Armenians hold one of the four quarters in Jerusalem (there are also the Christian quarter, the Jewish quarter and the Arab quarter).
The President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan attended a prayer for Homeland and Solders held at St. Grigor Lusavorich (Saint Gregory the Illuminator) Cathedral in Yerevan. The prayer was offered by Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II.
