On September 8th, the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates the feast of the Meeting of the Vladimir Icon of the Mother of God. This wonderworking icon is one of the most venerated in Russia and, according to tradition, dates from the dawn of Christianity.
We publish the texts of the prayers said at Church in honour of Saint Elisabeth Romanov. We hope that sharing in our prayers will bring you to start a spiritual conversation with our Patron Saint and provide you with some valuable insights.
The third Sunday after Pascha is a very special feast day in the Orthodox Church. On this day, we commemorate those brave women that were with Christ after His death and were the first ones to receive the joyous news about His resurrection.
