FEAST OF THE DISCOVERY OF THE BOX OF THE THEOTOKOS

We can only imagine the joy of finding possessions of the Holy Mother. This Sunday, July 10, is the feast of the Discovery of the Box of the Theotokos. The Holy Mother’s personal belongings became the object of devotion and veneration. During the time of the early Church, when Christians were persecuted, her possessions were kept hidden and secret.
