A MESSAGE FROM ABBESS MELANIA (November 26, 2020)
As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, we are reminded that, even in difficult times, there are endless reasons to thank God.  Personally, we are very aware of the blessing of still having a monastery after the recent fires and of staying healthy in these times of COVID.  Even more so, we are grateful to God for you our friends, who are always there for us, even in these tough times.  And yes, these are tough times, but Christ’s light shines brighter in darkness.  As we journey towards the Nativity, may we all let His light confront and banish the darkness in our own souls so that we, along with the Christmas star, may be lights leading others to our Incarnate God!

History: (Source:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trojeru%C4%8Dica, 11/21/2020)

  • Bogorodica Trojeručica (Serbian Cyrillic: Богородица Тројеручица, Greek: Παναγία Τριχερούσα, Panagia Tricherousa, meaning "Three-handed Theotokos") or simply Trojeručica (Тројеручица, Three-handed) is a famous wonderworking icon in the Serbian Orthodox monastery of Hilandar on Mount Athos, Greece.  It depicts the Theotokos (Virgin Mary) with the young Jesus in the hodegetria position, and is covered with a riza.  It is the most important icon of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
  • According to tradition, the icon was in the possession of John of Damascus in the early 8th century and it is associated with his miraculous healing around the year 717.  According to tradition, while he was serving as Vizier to caliph Al-Walid I, he was falsely accused of treachery and his hand was cut off.  The accusation was, allegedly, made by Byzantine Iconoclast emperor Leo the Isaurian, who was indeed a great opponent of St John, and friend of Al-Walid I.  Upon praying in front of an icon of the Theotokos, allegedly, his hand was miraculously restored. In thanksgiving, he had a silver replica of his hand fashioned and attached it to the icon.  After this, the icon became known as "three-handed" (Tricherousa), because it had three hands (two of Theotokos plus one more).
