- Can anyone tell me who the figures are surrounding the Theotokos in the
Kursk Root icon? (It would be most helpful if the identification was given
in order - clockwise or counter clockwise, just make it clear please.)

"A Psalm is the tranquility of souls, the arbitrator of peace, restraining
the disorder and turbulence of thoughts, for it softens the passion of the
soul and moderates its unruliness. A Psalm forms friendships, unites the
divided, mediates between enemies. For who can still consider him an enemy
with whom he has set forth one voice to God? So that the singing of Psalms
brings love, the greatest of good things, contriving harmony like some bond
of union and uniting the people in the symphony of a single choir."
