Jan 10 Our Lady of Guides in Constantinople

(Jan) 10. Our Lady of Guides, in Constantinople, where there was some of Our Lady's spindles to be seen, with some of the swaddling - clothes of the divine Infant, given by St. Pulcheria to that church. (Niceph., Tract. 3, cap. 7.)

The first icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary was painted by St. Luke the Evangelist which later, in the middle of the 5th century, was enshrined by the Empress St. Pulcheria in the Church of Hodegetria in Constantinople. This was the parish church of the guides (Gr. hodegosguide) who, in those days, would lead pilgrimages to the Holy Land and other holy places. Thus the Blessed Mother of Hodegetria became the patron of travelers and they would carry her icon with them on their journeys.

Yes, True Catholics should move to Britanny (where the world-wide 3 Days of Darkness punishment will be the least experienced/felt) if it, on a WELL thought out/planned PRACTICAL level, is feasible.
