'Kursk Icon to revisit Russia'
« on: December 11, 2010, 11:56:29 PM »
The Kursk Icon of the Mother of God, also called the Kursk Root icon, is due to come to Russia and Ukraine, and possibly Kazakhstan, in visits to various churches during 2011.

From the 'Voice of Russia' article:
Quote
Legend has it that in the 14th century the Tatar-Mongol invaders cut the icon in two but when an Orthodox priest put the parts together they miraculously become one again.

My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms
