Bishop Hovakim Manukyan attended the book launch for “Mary, Bearer of Life” by Bishop Christopher at Coventry Cathedral.

This book offers a unique perspective by examining the Biblical figure of Mary in the context of modern ethical dilemmas. It also delves into the spiritual aspect of motherhood and its many benefits. The book references Armenian spirituality, particularly the Lamentation of St. Gregory of Narek from the 10th and 11th centuries. The author also shares personal memories from his trips to Armenia.

The conclusion of the event was marked with a short evening service at Coventry Cathedral, which included a prayer for peace in Artsakh and the world.
