      Three Most Sacred Bulgarian Icons to Reunite in Sofia

      3 July 2008, Thursday

      The three most sacred Bulgarian miracle icons with the image of the
      Virgin Mary from the monasteries of Bachkovo, Troyan and Rila are
      going to travel to Sofia Thursday.

      The icons are going to be displayed together at the shrine and
      monument "St. Alexander Nevski", where at 6 pm Thursday Patriarch
      Maxim will lead a public prayer for the health and the well-being of
      the Bulgarian youth and the cure of the sick children.

      The three icons will leave the monasteries in armored cars and are
      going to be transported to Sofia under the strongest security measures.

      They are expected to arrive in Sofia at the shrine and monument "St
      Alexander Nevski" around 5:30 pm where all bishops from the Holy
      Synod are going to receive them with chants.

      The prayer is part of the new initiative of the daily newspaper
      "Standard", "Darik radio", the TV channel BTV and the Holy Synod
      dedicated to the children of Bulgaria under the motto "No to Drugs,
      No to Alcohol, No to Violence"

      Friday, a Russian Church Delegation is going to join the prayer lead
      by the archbishop of the Russian Orthodox Church Aleksey, the Vicar
      of the Moscow Patriarch and of the entire Russia Alexsiy II.

      Anyone wishing to see the holy icons is going to have three days to
      do so. Starting Thursday the shrine and monument "St Alexander
      Nevski" will remain open at all times.

      A similar event was held for the first time last year when the
      campaign "You Are Not Alone" lead by the same media and dedicated to
      the Bulgarian medics jailed in Libya united the three icons in Sofia.
