icon of the Virgin “BURZER”
October 30 (October 17, old style)
Description of the Icon of the Mother of God Redeemer:The glorification of the icon of the Most Holy Theotokos, the Deliverer, began in 1841, when, through prayers before it, one of the Greek provinces got rid of a locust invasion. Miracles emanating from the icon of the Virgin, attracted to her many pilgrims that the keeper of the shrine – the elder Martinian, a former inhabitant of one of the Athos monasteries. Tired of human attention, the elder, together with the icon of the Virgin Mary, returned to Athos and settled in the monastery of the holy great martyr Panteleimon. In 1889, the abbot of the monastery donated the miraculous icon of the Virgin to Russia for the Novo-Athos Simon-Kananitsky Monastery opened in the Caucasus.
The icon of the Mother of God “The Redeemer” was carried on a train by Emperor Alexander III, returning to the capital with his family after a rest in the south. As is known, the royal train fell into a catastrophe, but the emperor himself and his household miraculously survived and unharmed. The members of the royal family associated their miraculous salvation with the patronage and intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos. In memory of the miraculous salvation of the Russian emperor and his family, the celebration in honor of the icon of the Mother of God “The Savior” was established on October 17.
Some of the ancient images on the maforia of the Virgin depict five-pointed stars – pentagrams. Since ancient times, the pentagram means “Chosenness, duty, loyalty.” Unfortunately, starting from the 16th century, Masonic organizations began to use the pentagram, and later communist, which led to the emergence of an ambiguous attitude to this ancient pious symbol.
There is another version of the icon of the Most Holy Theotokos, the Deliverer, which depicts the holy Apostle Simon the Canaanite and the healer Panteleimon, holding the icon of the Mother of God against the backdrop of the New Athos Simon-Canaanite Monastery.
Before the icon of the Most Holy Theotokos, the Deliverer, they pray for the healing of the afflicted by insanity, from the invasion of the locusts, for the healing of mental and bodily infirmities, during a disaster, for the sending of grace in resolving difficult circumstances.
