Rare 17th c. Historical Calendar of the Feasts of the B.V.M. (Daily Posted in 2021)

Feb 3 Our Lady of Seidaneida near Damascus

(Feb) 3. Our Lady of Seidaneida, near Damascus. From this image, painted on wood, there flowed an oil which was never exhausted, no matter what quantity was taken. The virtue of this oil was so great that it cured even the infidels themselves. (Arnold, abbas Lubec. apud Baron. ad ann. 870, et apud Spondan ad ann. 1203.)

Note: In 547 A.D., a famous Catholic monastery was built in Syria by the Byzantine emperor Justinian I, following two visions he received of Our Lady. One indicated the intended site of the church, while the other outlined its design. Justinian dedicated the finished project on the Feast of the Nativity of Mary [Sept 8]. The monastery houses the miraculous image [icon] of Our Lady of Saideneida, which was painted by St. Luke. It was brought to the monastery in Syria [17 miles from Damascus, where it still *remains] in the year 870 A.D., from Jerusalem. 

 

*The holy Catholic monastery was stolen by the schismatic Greek [NON}orthodox - hundreds of years ago. Let us fervently pray to Our Lady of Seidaneida, that this sacred icon of Her, will be rescued from the wicked hands that are criminally holding it hostage... (i.e., restored to its rightful owner), the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church!
