The idea of creating shrines endorsed military chaplains, which in the Kyiv Patriarchate are more than five hundred. A new icon was unveiled and consecrated in St. Michael’s Cathedral in Kiev. Soon we were taking her to the ATO.
“This icon it is dedicated to the present. There are soldiers who are defending our country and who continue the traditions of Ukrainian knighthood,” explained the painter Nikitin. “It will become an icon like sailors Saint Nicholas, as this icon will be a real blessing for military chaplains and all military who fight for our independence,” said chaplain Andrew Brincat.
