The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him." When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear." (Matthew 17)

  Mother of God Icon of Comfort and Consolation - Jan 21  

This icon is on Mount Athos in the Vatopedi Monastery church of the Annunciation. It is called the "Comfort" or "Consolation" icon of the Mother of God. Dating back to the year 807, it depicts the Theotokos with her head towards her right shoulder as Christ puts his hand to her lips. A voice from the icon warns of pirates coming to pillage the monastery. The Holy Virgin took the hand of Her Son saying, “Do not open the gates today, but go to the walls and drive off the pirates.” They heeded this warning, and the monastery was saved.

To this day, a lamp burns in front of this wonderworking icon in honor of this miracle.
