Feast day of icon of Three-handed Theotokos in Belgrade

In a little church of St. Sava in Vracar, on July 25, 2010, a feast of the Wonder-working Icon of the Three-handed Theotokos was celebrated with the Divine Liturgy.

The Divine Liturgy was served by His Holiness IRINEJ, Serbian Patriarch with the concelebration of High Reverend archimandrite Danilo Ljubotina, protopresbyter-staurophors: Velimir Petkovic (parish preast from San Diego, California), Stevan Vlacic, Dragomir Ubiparovic, Radivoje Panic, presbyter Gaja Gajic, hieromonk Justin from the Hilandar monastery, protodeacon Stevan Rapajic and deacon Dragan Tanasijevic.

After the Divine Liturgy His Holiness cut the slava cake and congratulated the patron saint's feast day to the gathered faithful and all citizens of Belgrade, and especially to priesthood and monks and and the faithful people in Kosovo and Metohija as well the brotherhood of the Hilandar.

Serbian Patriarch pointed out in his sermon that the Most Holy Theotokos with her Three-handed icon had gathered us not only in space but also in time, since Saint John of Damascus until today, showing us all her motherly goodness. 

Rejoice, our helper, who help us with the Three-handed icon of yours
