The Icon of the MostHoly Mother of God, "Unfading Blossom" ("Neuvyadaemii Tsvet"):

Commemorated on April 3

      The Icon of the MostHoly Mother of God, "Unfading Blossom" ("Neuvyadaemii Tsvet"): On this icon the MostHoly Mother of God holds Her Divine Son upon Her right arm, and in Her left hand is a bouquet of white lilies. This bouquet symbolically signifies the unfading flower of virginity and immaculateness of the All-Pure Virgin, to Whom thus also Holy Church turns: "Thou art the Root of virginity and the Unfading Blossom of purity". Copies of this icon were glorified at Moscow, Voronezh and other locales of the Russian Church.

1996-2001 by translator Fr. S. Janos.
