Virgin Mary Galaktotrofousa - Holy Monastery Hilandar

This icon too was given by the fathers of the Lavra of St Sabbas to St Sabbas, Archibishop of Serbia, during a visit, thus fulfilling an old propecy of St Sabbas the Sanctified. Sabbas dedicated it to the Serbian kelli at Karyes, the “Typikario”, where he himself often stayed and where it remains today on the sanctuary screen to the right of the Gate Beautiful, that is, in the place of the icon of Christ, which is on the left, contrary to the usual practice.

Holy Monastery of Hilandar: the Serbian Monastery of Mount Athos with Panagia Tricherousa and Galaktotrofousa

The name of the Monastery probably comes from the founder of the oldest monastery in the area, the hermit Grigorios Helandaris. Around 980 AD the monk Grigorios built, together with other monks, a small church and a small house, on the site where the Monastery is today. According to tradition, there is also the interpretation that the name of the Monastery is based on the etymology of the word "helandio" which is the Byzantine ship.

Saints who were also Mothers - 16 Saints that had Family and Children

In the Orthodox Synaxarion, there are several female Saints, who were also mothers. Mother Saints are a characteristic example of christian love, spiritual strength, and patience. Throughout their lives, they carried out a huge Christian work, stood by their family and sacrificed themselves for their faith and children. Furthermore, these mothers serve as a shining example for families today and reveal the power of motherhood and the upbringing of children on the path of the Lord. Through the lives of the Holy Mothers, the value of faith and boundless love for the Lord Jesus Christ and the family is raised.
