Wooden Icon The Intercession of the Theotokos, Protection of the Mother of God

The Feast of the Intercession of the Virgin Mary owes its appearance to a miraculous event that occurred in 910 in Constantinople, during the reign of Emperor Leo Vl the Philosopher, who received his nickname for his love of book wisdom.

The capital was besieged by hordes of enemies, capable of breaking into the city at any moment, destroying it, and burning it. The only refuge for the inhabitants of the besieged city was the temple, where people in prayer asked God for salvation from the barbarians. At that time, the holy fool Andrew and his disciple Epiphanius were in the church. And now Saint Andrew sees the Mother of God Herself kneeling before the Lord for the salvation of the people. After which He approaches the Throne and, having prayed again, takes off the veil from His head and extends it over the people praying in the temple, protecting them from enemies visible and invisible. The veil in the hands of the Most Pure Mother, surrounded by angels and a host of saints, shone “more than the rays of the sun,” and nearby stood the holy Baptist of the Lord John and the holy Apostle John the Theologian. Then Saint Andrew asks his disciple Epiphanius: “Do you see, brother, the Queen and Lady of all, praying for the whole world?” “I see, holy father, and I am horrified,” Epiphanius answered him. Thus, the Mother of God saved Constantinople from ruin and loss of life.
