The Nyametsk Icon of the Mother of God

Commemorated on June 26

      The Nyametsk Icon of the Mother of God was given as a gift by the Greek emperor Andronikes Paleologos to the Moldavian ruler Alexander the Voevoda, and then placed into the Moldavian Nyametsk Ascension monastery.
      At this place afterwards, under the guidance of the Mother of God, were glorified many an ascetic of the Russian Church, under the lead of the great starets-elder, the schema-archimandrite Paisii Velichkovsky (1722-1794).

1996-2001 by translator Fr. S. Janos.
