On Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Great Lent, April 5, the parishioners of St. Gregory Church in Tampa, Florida were graced by the presence of the Miracle Working Myrrh-Streaming Icon of the Mother of God “Softener of Evil Hearts”. The holy icon was present for the Divine Liturgy of Presanctified Gifts served by parish rector, Archpriest Andrey Kovaelv. Despite the icon’s visit falling in the middle of the work-week, a large contingent of parishioners came to lift up their prayers to the Mother of God. 

Later in the day, Fr. Andrei along with her caretaker Sergei Leonidovich Fomin performed an “aerial procession” with the wonderworking icon.
