10th Sunday after Pentecost. Orthodox faithful of Lahore parish celebrated the Divine Liturgy on the feast of The Pochaev Icon of the Mother of God.

Fr. Paul told that The Pochaev Icon of the Mother of God is among the most venerable sacred items of the Russian Church. It is known throughout all the Slavic world: they venerate it in Russia, in Bosnia, Serbia, Bulgaria, and other places. Christians also of other confessions come for the veneration of the wonderworking image of the MostHoly Mother of God, alongside the Orthodox. At the Pochaev Lavra, an ancient rampart of Orthodoxy, the wonderworking icon has resided about 400 years. The miracles, which issued forth from the holy icon, are numerous and are testified to in the monastery books with the inscriptions of the faithful, who with prayer have met with deliverance from unclean spirits, liberation from captivity, and sinners brought to their senses.
