Georgian, Russian church leaders hold joint mass in Moscow

TBILISI, Georgia -- Leaders from the Georgian and Russian Orthodox Churches performed a joint mass in Moscow today to honor the arrival of relics.

After the war between Russia and Georgia, orthodox churches in South Ossetia asked to become part of the Russian church. However, the Russian patriarch denied the request, saying that the church didn't want to get involved in a political struggle, and was respecting the territory of the Georgian church.
