I just received an email from one of the parishoners that the wonder-working Kursk icon of the Theotokos will be at my church, St. Thomas the Apostle (OCA) this Wednesday! So, for all those knowledgeable about these things, when I venerate her, what should I pray? What should I ask for?
If you live in or near southern Missouri and want to attend, I'm told that it will be there only for an hour or so starting at 11am. Click on the website link under my avatar for address and directions.
