For Advent: Our Lady of Vladimir

During one of his lucid and sensible moments, our friend Ivan sent us the icon of Our Lady of Valdimir (Russia), for us to publish during advent while we await Christmas.

Ned Kelly and Catherine agree with Ivan, that it’s good to contemplate the Christ Child and His Mother during the Christmas season:

    Methinks meknows who Our Lady is. But who is Vladimir? Used to think the man’s name was Joseph.

    Vladimir is the Russian city where this icon reposed for a long time. It originally came from Constantinople.

    The city of Vladimir is named after the first Christian Prince of the Russians, St Vladimir who converted to Christianity in 988.
