On October 01, 911, during the reign of emperor Leo the Wise, there was an all-night vigil in the Blachernae church of the Theotokos in Constantinople. Standing near the rear of the church of the church was Saint Andrew the Fool for Christ, and his disciple Epiphanius. At four o'clock in the morning, the Theotokos appeared above the people with a veil spread over her outstretched hands, as if to protect them. She was surrounded by angels and saints. Seeing this, Andrew asked his disciple, "Do you see the Queen and Lady of all is praying for the whole world?"
Thursday, September 30 - Festal Vespers at 7:00 pm
Friday, October 01 - Divine Liturgy at 7:00 pm
Protected by your appearance, O Theotokos; today, we devout people solemnly celebrate. Gazing upon your most pure icon, we fervently say: Protect us with your holy veil, and deliver us from all evil, imploring your Son, Christ our God, to save our souls.
Today the Virgin is present in the Church, and with the choirs of saints, invisibly prays to God for us. The angels worship with the hierarchs, the apostles rejoice with the prophets; because the Theotokos prays for us to the eternal God.
