Philip Coppens: An icon for Mother Russia

Philip Coppens' An icon for Mother Russia:

The Virgin of Kazan is one of the most revered icons Russia ever knew. Its disappearance at the time of the Russian Revolution was a catastrophe, but its resurgence and its link with Pope John Paul II and Fatima has added a most recent chapter to one of the world’s greatest icons.

Fascinating history of the icon, politics, the Vatican's role, relationship to Fatima, maverick or hidden archeology, and BVM apparitions.
