Our Lady Of Kazan
Country : Russia
Year : 1579
This miraculous icon was found in the ruins of a burnt-out house at Kazan on the River Volga in 1579. Before the revolution, perhaps still, sometimes, a Russian mother would give a copy of this picture to her daughter at her wedding, as a blessing on her and her new home.
There is a Russian feast of Mary under this title as a commemoration of its founding on July 8th. There are many replicas of this picture, of which the best known was in the church of Our Lady of Kazan at Moscow.
The Byzantine chapel of the Oriental Institute at Rome is dedicated in honor of Our Lady of Kazan.
