St. Alexander Yaroslavich Nevsky Icons and Images - Buy

The Holy Prince Alexander Nevsky was born on May 30, 1220 in the city of Pereslavl-Zalessky, where his father reigned. The rite of dedicating Alexander to the soldiers was performed in the Transfiguration Cathedral of Pereslavl by St Simon, Bishop of Suzdal, one of the composers of the Kiev-Pechersk Paterik. From the gracious old hierarch, Saint Alexander received the first blessing for military service in the Name of God, the defense of the Russian Church and the Russian land.


Prince Alexander, called Nevsky for the battle won on the Neva River and ranked for it to the saints, defended the homeland for many years from enemy hordes, participated in the conclusion of alliances with influential neighbors. The holy prince used every opportunity to exalt his native land and to facilitate her lot. All his exploits were accomplished thanks to the prayers he constantly offered to the Lord. Thanks to Alexander, the future of Russia was saved, and, therefore, his duty to God was fulfilled. In the monastery Gorodets, the ascetic prince surrendered his spirit to the Lord on November 14, 1263, completing his difficult life path by the adoption of the holy monastic schema with the name of Alex.


Alexander's self-sacrificing sacrifice for the good of the Fatherland and his protection from enemies, as well as devotion to faith in Christ, served as a fine example of a wise and brave ruler. Today Saint Alexander Nevsky protects our country and all the people of Russia with their heavenly protection. While the Orthodox pray to him for the defense of the Motherland and honor him with their remembrance, there will not be a bloody war.


Prayers for Alexander Nevsky should also be extolled for those who are at war, and the Holy Image of Alexander Nevsky will protect those who go to the front or serve in the army.
