04 November 2021

On November 4, 2021, on the day of commemoration of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, with the blessing of His Grace Gedeon, Bishop Makarovsky, the abbot of the Tithes Monastery of the Nativity of the Most Holy Theotokos, a festive divine service was performed at the monastery by the brethren in the priesthood. 

After the reading Holy Gospel, a fervent prayer was raised for an end to the coronavirus epidemic and for doctors who are fighting for the life and health of the sick. 

The miraculous Kazan icon of the Mother of God is one of the most revered in the Russian Church. Among all the icons of the Theotokos, the Kazan image has the largest number of miraculous revered lists. Before the revolution, in the minds of most Russian people, the name of the provincial city of Kazan was associated primarily with the Kazan icon of the Mother of God, kept in the Mother of God Convent.
