I would like to joyfully announce the details of the visit to our Holy Protection parish of the ancient wonder-working Icon of the Mother of God called the Kursk-Root. (schedule below) Spread the word to the pious believers you know, as well as those who need God's help for health or other problems.
This historic Icon was working miracles in the 14th century already. St. Seraphim of Sarov was healed by this Icon when he was a chronically ill boy. A miracle in the late 19th c. is recorded when atheists tried to set a bomb underneath the Icon stand and destroy the Icon and kill the worshipers in church. It went off after the service, demolised the church, didn't hurt anybody, and the Icon was flawlessly intact -- a miracle which actually increased people's faith. Since its evacuation with emigres from Russia in 1920 the Icon has been a protector of the Russian Orthodox abroad and has healed people of various ethnic and linguistic groups. The Mother of God loves all of us.
