Anyone know what this icon says? It looks Russian. I think I see a "Christ" on the first line; then a "psyche" ("soul") and "zooan" ("life") on the second line.

Yes, it is Greek. So it's wrong place.

Ah, and most of Slavic icons have titles and descriptions written in Church Slavonic, not Russian

Hi Jetavan,

It's Greek, the beginning of Homily 7 (on the Hexaemeron) by St. Basil the Great (The creation of moving creatures):
(Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεὸς) ἐξαγαγέτω τὰ ὕδατα ἑρπετὰ ψυχῶν ζωσῶν καὶ πετεινὰ πετόμενα

(And God said) Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly

Thanks. That must be Genesis 1:20.

"Lord, look down from Heaven upon this place, and visit it with Your mercy."

It's from his Life, when he blessed a monastery newly-established by St. Alexius of Moscow, later to be called the Andronikov Monastery after its first hegumen, St. Sergius' disciple St. Andronik.

Quote from: Leo Tolstoy to Grand Duke Nikolai Mikhailovich
[W]hatever was hidden behind the name of the hermit Feodor . . . let historical evidence fail to connect Alexander with Kuzmich, the Legend lives in all its beauty and sincerity.

"Lord, look at this place from Heaven and fill it with Your mercy"

It's probably a quote from somewhere but I cannot find the reference.

It's similar to one of the verses of the psalm 79 that's also used in the pontifical Liturgy. But maybe the exact quotation is from a different psalm?...

Yeah, it was familiar with bihop's blessing to me as well.
