​Giorgi Margvelashvili Congratulates to the Georgian Population on the Occasion of the Commemoration Day of Saint Ekvtime Takaishvili

Today we are celebrating the day of commemoration of Saint Ekvtime Takaishvili – National Hero, the Man of God as Georgian Orthodox Church used to say.
 
Hardly to find any field of public life for which the great patriot has not given the efforts.
 
St. Ekvtime Takaishvili was actively involved in literacy community activities, in the establishment of university, in first authority’s work of the independent Georgia. His name is connected with discovery of the ancient manuscripts of the “Knight in the Panther's Skin”, as well as the highly important archaeological, historical, educational and ethnographic works.
 
His heroic sacrifice for keeping Georgia’s historical heritage and for repatriating is a special example for all Georgians.
 
I am confident that his merits provide guidance for everyone for whom the supreme goal is serving for own people and homeland.
