Dear friends, on August 28 -29 two miraculous Icons of the mother of God, The ‘’Kursk-Root’’ Icon and The Myrrh-streaming Icon ‘’Hawaiian-Iveron’’ were present at St. John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Washington, DC . His Grace Nicholas, Bishop of Manhattan and Archpriest Victor Potapov celebrated the Slavonic Liturgy.
Father Sergiy and parishioners of our church of St. Joseph of Optina also attended the Liturgy and were able to raise prayers to our Lord Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Theotokos in front of these sacred Icons. We would like to express our gratitude to the parish of St. John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Washington, DC for giving many people the opportunity to witness the myrrh-streaming phenomenon in the flesh. The whole Cathedral was filled with a pleasant scent!
Glory to God!
