The Virgin of Kazan. 14,5 х 20 cm


In the 16th century, Kazan City was taken over by Russians and it was no longer a part of the Kazan Empire. After a devastating fire that destroyed half of the city, a little girl Matrena saw Virgin of Kazan icon in her dreams. The Virgin asked to get the Icon out of the ground and tell the Archiepiscopal about it. Nevertheless, nobody took the girl’s words seriously. The same dream repeated itself two more times. After that, Matrena and her mother dug the Icon out, which after praying was moved into the Blagoveshnkiy Cathedral. The new arrived Icon had supernatural curing effects, helped and protected Russian people from threats of being conquered by foreign foes.

Pavel,

Great start to your website!

A number of your posts contain the word Archiepiscopal. In English this is an adjective. When you mean to use a noun, better to say Archbishop.

Keep up the good work!
Christos voskrese!
