Feast on the Iveron parish in Manila

Today, the Iveron parish in Manila celebrated the Patronal feast, moved from October 26. The history of the Iveron icon of the Mother of God is connected with the history of iconoclasm, condemned by the 7th Ecumenical Council, whose memory is also celebrated today.
With the Philippines now second in Southeast Asia in terms of coronavirus infections, the quarantine in Manila is still quite strict: temple occupancy is allowed at 30%, and children are still prohibited to attend services.
After the Divine Liturgy, the parishioners prayed for the safe journey of our regent Roman to the Jordanville monastery (ROCOR, USA). We pray that the Lord will grant him the kind of spiritual experience that can only be obtained in the most famous Orthodox monastery in America.
