Acquisition history

The presented miraculous image got its name from the place where it was found and is considered one of the most revered in the Orthodox religion. Most believers who uttered a prayer to the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, from their own experience, were convinced of her gift of miracles.

The history of this image began back in 1579 in the month of July. Its phenomenon was associated with the great fire that occurred in Kazan in connection with hot weather.

According to surviving records of the patriarch-chronicler Hermogenes, the nine-year-old Matron’s daughter, a merchant, had a dream where the Blessed Virgin herself told her where to find the image. The child reported this to her parents this morning, but they, in turn, referring to the fact that visions could be dreamed only by saints, ignored her. However, the next few nights the dream was repeated again and again, then the girl and her mother decided to visit the place where the Mother of God indicated in a dream.

A divine face was found on the ashes deeply buried in the ground under the rubble. When it was cleaned of dirt and dust, everyone was surprised to find that the image remained intact, and its colors retained their brightness. Then it was suggested that the miraculous image was placed on the ground during the Golden Horde or the Kazan Khanate thanks to the then secret Orthodox Christians. After its appearance, the face was placed in the church of St. Nicholas.

The Orthodox Church on the 21st of July in the month of July (July 8, according to the old style) celebrates in honor of the divine face, because on that day the miraculous image was shown to the Orthodox people.

When is the day of remembrance of the icon of the Kazan Mother of God

The icon of the Kazan Mother of God refers to special images that are considered guides for believers.This Shrine is able to show the right path to lost souls, it will help all those in need who sincerely seek help.

The Day of Remembrance of the Icon of Our Lady of Kazan is celebrated twice a year: in summer and in autumn. In the summer, the holiday falls on July 21. This day is connected with the dream of a little girl, the merchant daughter of Matryona. It was she who, in her nightly dreams, saw that the Shrine was on the conflagration and brought her mother there. The story goes that after one of the lists was handed over to Ivan the Terrible, the Tsar built a monastery in which he became Mother Superior.

Autumn holiday falls on November 4th. This date is due to the fact that in troubled times, Russian soldiers thanks to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary managed to free Moscow from the Poles. On November 4, Kazan Cathedral was opened on Red Square in Moscow.

Icons and lists that have survived to this day

This prayer was sent by believers in a wonderful way. As you know, she was discovered by the daughter of the merchant Matrena, after a strong fire in Kazan. Since then, lists have been made many times from the original, which also have miraculous powers.

The first list with the icon of Our Lady of Kazan was made in 1579. He was subsequently transferred to Tsar Ivan the Terrible in Moscow. After some time, the list in 1636 was transferred to the Kazan Cathedral, built on Red Square. And in 1737 the icon was placed in the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin in St. Petersburg. But in 1811, it was again decided to return the icon to the Kazan Cathedral.

The second famous list was made in 1611. The period of troubled times has come. Therefore, the new icon was intended directly to Dmitry Pozharsky, who led the army of militias, which defended Moscow from the Poles.

The icon of the Kazan Mother of God was known for its powerful power, so many churches wanted to have it on their iconostasis. Therefore, in the 18th century, a huge number of lists were made. But, unfortunately, it happened that the original icon was lost. In the 20th century, the Shrine was abducted, and it disappeared without a trace.

Lists made with the miraculous icon quickly spread around the world. Many of them were exported after the 1917 revolution. The modern Russian Orthodox Church strives for the relics to return to their historical homeland. Currently, the oldest list can be seen in the Tretyakov Gallery. This icon is dated 1606.

There is a Shrine in the residence of the Moscow Patriarch. He was transferred to the Roman Catholic Church as a sign of the end of the confrontation. It is believed that the list closest to the original is in the Prince Vladimir Cathedral in St. Petersburg.

Listen to the troparia of the Kazan Theotokos:

Third prayer


Oh, who does not please Thee, Virgin Grace, who does not sing Your mercy to the human race.

We pray to you, we ask you, do not leave us in the wickedness of the perishing, dissolve our hearts with love, and send your arrow to our enemies, let our hearts bite the world to those who persecute us.

Since the world hates us - You stretch out Your love for us, while the world drives us - You accept us, give us the Graceful power of patience - to endure the trials in this world without grumbling.

Soften the hearts of evil people who are rising against us, may their hearts not perish in evil - but please, Gracious, Your Son and our God, may peace be their hearts, but the devil, the father of evil, shall be put to shame!

We, singing Thy mercy to us, evil, indecent, sing Thou, O Most Beautiful Lady Virgin Grace, hear us at this hour, those who have broken hearts,

protect us with peace and love for each other and for our enemies, uproot from us all malice and enmity, let us sing to Thee and Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ of ours: Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
