The icon of the Savior is of the early Christian type, favored by the emperor Justinian in the 6th century AD. He bequeathed the icon to the Greek Orthodox monastic community of Holy Mount Sinai, which he built in honor of the great prophet Moses who received the Ten Commandments high on the mountain and where later, the holy relic of Saint Catherine of Egypt was discovered by monks at the foot of the Holy Mountain. We urge all to Pray for the protection of the Monastic Community of Mt. Sinai in these troubled times, and pray for the Holy Protection of the Mother of God to cover the Holy Monks resident there, the visiting Pious Pilgrims, the local Bedouins and the Security Forces stationed there to check the delusion of fanaticism.
