The "Akafistnaya / Akathist" Icon of the Mother of God

Commemorated on January 12

      The "Akafistnaya / Akathist" Icon of the Mother of God is located in the Khilendaria cathedral iconostasis. It received the designation "Akathist" because, during a fire at the cathedral in 1837 an akathist was read before it, and it remained unharmed to the solace of the monks.

1996-2001 by translator Fr. S. Janos.
