      Pray thou fervently for the whole world,
      O Theotokos, for it needeth thine aide,
      for the snares of the evil one
      have been spread over all the face of the earth,
      the nations rage and storms of temptations
      have risen against the Church of God.
      Wherefore, as once in Cana of Galilee,
      speak thou a word to thy Son, that He transform
      the water of temptations and sorrows
      into the wine of compunction and divine gladness.

      THEOTOKION in Tone V at the Praises in Matins
      from the service for the
      KURSK-ROOT ICON OF THE MOTHER OF GOD
      (from the booklet of its history, recent miracles,
      liturgical services and akathist hymn, published by
      the St. John of Kronstadt Press, 1989)

      The KURSK-ROOT icon of our Lady
      visited Holy Protection church
      in Rochester, NY, this week.
      Thanks to notification from church friends
      it was possible to venerate the icon even if
      not possible to remain for the service.
      Sinful, Peter Brandt-Sorheim

      Mother of God pray for us!
      Do thou keep safe from harm
      those who bear thine icon hither
      and preserve their devotion!
