By all accounts the visit of the holy Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God to Stillwater, OK was a smashing success.
A few pictures can be seen below.
The event was quite well attended, with 41 non-St Nino visitors coming and going during the course of the evening.
While it is interesting to note the numbers, and we do hope that it is an indication of the blessing of the Theotokos, we know from speaking to people that most came to seek the aid of the Mother of God while she was in Stillwater in this most tangible way.
In a rather heart-rending moment, a very sweet woman (not Orthodox), as she was leaving, pulled a St Nino parishioner aside and said, “Thank you for doing this, I came tonight because I need a miracle for my daughter.”
We are grateful to the Diocese for allowing us this honor. We are grateful that many in our hometown were able to meet and honor the Theotokos. We hope that all who honored her will be blessed and we hope that the presence of this holy image in Stillwater worked many miracles of which we may never hear.
Most Holy Theotokos Save Us!
