The feast of the “Life-Giving Spring” Icon of the Mother of God at the Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra
The feast of the “Life-Giving Spring” Icon of the Theotokos is celebrated on Friday of Bright Week in remembrance of the resurrection of a Constantinople church of the same name, which was destroyed by the Turks after the conquest of Constantinople and was built anew only in the nineteenth century. According to the Church Typikon, the blessing of water is celebrated today with a Paschal procession.
