Kursk Icon Visits Holy Apostles
Kursk Icon Visits Holy Apostles
Kursk Icon Visits Holy Apostles
Anticipating the coming in the flesh of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ, we continued this Sunday to bask in the grace of His most pure Mother, the blessed, glorious Lady, the Theotokos and Ever-virgin Mary, in commemorating again her wonder-working Kursk Root Icon of the Sign.
 
“God is wondrous in His saints”
God shows His power and presence among us through countless means, including holy icons.  As it says in the psalms, ‘God is wondrous in His saints,’ and it is through the holy icons of the saints that this is made most clear.  The Kursk Root icon of the Sign manifested its first recorded miracle upon its discovery at the root of a tree in the year 1295 near the city of Kursk in Russia, hence its name.  When the discoverer of the icon picked it up, a water-spring gushed out of the ground where it had lain.  From that time to this, armies have been quelled, destructive passions have been stilled, and countless people have been healed when asking for the prayers of the Mother of God to her divine Son on their behalf before this icon.  The other part of the name, ‘The Sign,’ refers to the image on the icon itself, in which the Lord is depicted within her womb, which was the sign predicted by the prophet Isaiah when he said, ‘Behold: a Virgin shall conceive and bear a Son and shall call His name Immanuel: God with us.

We continue to be inspired by the visitation of the Holy Hawaiian Myrrh-Streaming Icon of the Mother of God on Saturday, 9/9.  Please keep the Icon's devoted steward, Subdeacon Nectary, always in your prayers for his continued strength.

Orthodox Christianity: Founded 33 AD
Two thousand years ago, after receiving the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the apostles of Christ went out from their native Israel to bring the Christian Faith to all the far reaches of the world. The ancient Christian Faith, founded so long ago, remains unchanged today and is found in the Orthodox Church. Holy Apostles Orthodox Church was founded with the purpose of bringing the Gospel and Divine Services of the Russian Orthodox Church to the people of America in the English language. We invite you to come to any of the Divine Services or events at our mission church.

Come and See.
