The Feast of the Patronage of the Most Holy Mother of God
The chief motive that led to the institution of this feast was a vision granted to St. Andrew, the Fool for Christ, When the Saracens besieged the capital of Constantinople.

Afterwards she arose, removed from her head a luminous veil, and stretched it out wide over the people in church. Then she disappeared. St. Andrew and his disciple, Epiphany, saw the vision and understood that the Mother of God came to rescue the city. News of this miracle spread throughout the whole city like a flash of lightning. The enemy retreated and the city
