The event is crucial for our church. The canonization is important for the church, for the people, as Gavriil Bănulescu-Bodoni was the first metropolitan bishop of Chișinău and Hotin,” said Soroca bishop Ioan Moşneguţu.
The remains of Gavriil Bănulescu-Bodoni will be unburied on August 30 - 31 and will be exposed at Căpriana monastery.
The relics of Agafia of Cușelăuca are already displayed for the believers. Some say they really make wonders.
