The image of the icon of the Mother of God
called Virgin of Peschanskaya is famous as one of the miraculous images of the Kazan Mother of God style. The appearance of this icon in 1754 year connected with the name of St Joseph, the Russian bishop/saint of Belgorod. He had a dream that in a certain Belgorod's church and in a forgotten place there was an icon of the Mother of God. The icon was found and in 1792 the church together with the icon was transferred to another location in the suburbs Peschi (Sands). Through the prayers to the Peschanskaya icon of the Mother of God many miracles occurred, people were healed from incurable diseases and people glorified the Virgin as the defender of mankind. Feast Day of the Icon is Oct 22/Nov 4
