"Sometimes I have a feeling that nothing will help this country,"-Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia His Holiness and Beatitude Ilia II said at the meeting with the clergy and psychologists of the Mtskheta-Tbilisi Eparchy.

Patriarch and Archbishop Shio held a meeting with the clergy and psychologists of the Mtskheta-Tbilisi Eparchy on the issues of aggression raised in young people.

Discussions focused on the problems and challenges of modern world. His holiness listened to the viewpoints of the speakers regarding factors causing aggression in the youth. Education and bringing up, difficult socio-economic backgrounds, impaired values, and so on were named among the main problems.

The Patriarch said that he wants to hold some meetings and discuss "how
to help people"?

"You know that negative news comes, and the negative events happen. Youth is involved in it. Hate speech - Some people think that social conditions are hard, but I think there is something more powerful. The Bible says that in the last days before the second coming of Jesus Christ, the evil spirit, the Devil will strengthen his influence. Of course, with human participation. If a man does not want it and lives a spiritual life, the devil can not do anything and I want to hold a few meetings and discuss how we can help people. First of all, we should strengthen our prayers and ask psychologists to express their opinions about it.Sometimes I have a feeling that nothing will help this country It looks like a big stone, a stone, rolling down the mountain and you can not stop it, this is how it looks like today. I want our psychologists to take an active part in the conversation. God bless you, "- Patriarch said at the beginning of the meeting.

The meeting was held two days ago in the Patriarchate. Patriarchate"s TV "Unanimity" reports about the meeting with psychologists.
