Icon of the Mother of God - Burning Bush


The burning bush is a wonderful plant, it is mentioned in the Bible and ancient manuscripts. It justifies its name, because in the summer heat, in the absence of wind, the plant is enveloped in a light haze that the lit match ignites, and the plant itself does not suffer at all. There is such an unusual phenomenon due to the evaporation of essential oils formed in all above-ground parts of the dome.

According to the official classification, this plant is called dictamnus. And in everyday life it is called the wild badyan and yasenets. The burning bush is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the ruta family. In diameter, it can reach 1 m at a height of 80 cm. Its roots are powerful, woody. Stems are straight, strong, branched in the upper part, sticky to the touch. The leaves are pinnate, similar in shape to the leaves of ash (hence one of the names).

The habitat of this plant is quite wide, from the Mediterranean down to the Far East. In the wild, yasenets grow among shrubs, on forest edges, stony rocks.

The bush is unburned - the plant is unpretentious, rather cold-resistant. It grows seamlessly in sunny places and in partial shade, both on poor soils and on cultivated soils. The aspen has a characteristic odor, somewhat reminiscent of aniseed almonds, which few people like.

This perennial blooms in early July and blooms throughout the month. A large, wide-open bell with long curved stamens, white or pink in color - such is its flower. The burning bush forms a racemes, friable inflorescences, which invite to smell them. But this should not be done, otherwise a headache, weakness and drowsiness will appear. If you touch the plant, shrouded in haze, you can get burns with the formation of blisters and a long-term non-healing wound, after which scars can remain. When the weather is cloudy, it is completely harmless.

Yasenets can be propagated by seeds, cuttings and division. Seeds ripen to the beginning of autumn, sow them better before winter, as they do not differ by good germination. In the spring or autumn (but not in the summer!) You can divide the "bush". The burning bush is the easiest to reproduce by non-lignified cuttings, which must be taken “with the heel”. Rooting them is desirable after treatment with a root formation stimulant and immediately at a fixed place, maintaining a distance of 40 cm, since transplant they suffer badly. A plant grown from seeds blooms, as a rule, in the fourth year, and from cuttings, it can please with flowering the very next.

Despite the fact that the bush is not burning, it is a poisonous plant, it is widely used in folk and traditional medicine. It helps treat depressions, allergies, respiratory infections, tropical malaria, scabies, epilepsy and expel worms. However, self-medicating is not worth it. Apply it in cooking. In Georgia, for example, condiments to meat and snacks are made from its flowers.

In landscape design the yasenets is used both in mixborders and in single landing. He gets along well with dry-loving plants, such as daylilies, monard, geyhera, etc. Given the peculiarity of the plant, it is not necessary to plant it near the tracks, especially those who have small children and pets. Perhaps, he does not need to be planted at all on his plot, but to admire from a distance.

Value icons

Speaking about the meaning of this icon, you should pay attention to its iconography. Here at the core is the church hymns, in which the Mother of God is compared with Kupina. This fireproof bush can be seen in the hand of the Virgin. It should be noted that not a single Old Testament image is used here, which is revealed in the plot of the icon.

Originally the Burning Bush was depicted as a burning bushin which was the image of the Mother of God. Here was shown the prophet Moses, who knelt before a bush. After a while, the image was becoming more and more complicated. Today, this amazing icon has a very complex storyline, personifying the history of origin.

History of origin

When the people of Israel were in captivity, at this time Moses was herding sheep. He decided to take his flock to the desert where Mount Sinai was located. It was here that God gave Moses the Ten Commandments.

Here the prophet met with the Angel of the Lord, who emerged from the bush. This bush was burning, but it did not burn. Therefore Moses wanted to see this miracle. Here they heard the voice of God, who told him that he did not come close, and then ordered to take off his shoes, because the prophet had come to the holy land.

God spoke with Moses for a long time, he informed him about the mission of the prophet, which was that he needed to bring the poor Israeli people, thus freeing them from Egyptian slavery.

Up to this point, Moses was not a prophet. It was the Lord who rewarded him with this gift and the gift of miracles. However, Moses was deprived of oratorical abilities, and he could not proclaim the words of God, therefore the Lord appointed Aaron to be his assistant.

What pray before the icon?

Before this icon is to pray for escape from fire, lightning. In addition, a prayer in front of the icon of the Neopalimaya Kupina will help protect you from evil troubles or heal from ailments.

Before the Burning Bush, it is worth praying that the Mother of God protects from an enemy attack and heals the soul with the body. But at the same time, it should be understood that the icon can not "specialize" in a particular area. Therefore it is worthwhile to turn with faith in the power of God. You should always be honest with yourself and never hide your sins when you are in the temple.

What helps the burning bush?

Those who pray to this icon will be able to protect the house from fires, arson, as well as save them from lightning damage. However, the most important isthat this icon helps to protect yourself from a fiery hyena. It protects the human soul from it. Therefore, the Virgin Mary should be addressed in order to help burn the spiritual sins that were committed by man.

It is worth noting that during wars, people in front of this icon asked for protection in battle. Many argue that this icon can protect people whose work is connected with fire, for example, firefighters, military. The Mother of God, whose image is represented in this icon, protects believers from burns, various injuries, rash acts. But the Orthodox believe that this icon saves a person from his sins. Before this way, people can pray for deliverance from a dysfunctional mental state.

In the house, the image of the Protector should also be located if a person wants to protect their housing from various misfortunes. Reliable protection of this shrine will be for those who were born from 24.09 to 23.10.

Where is?

If we talk about the location of the amazing bush, it is located on the Sinai Peninsula. It is there that the monastery is located, which was founded in the 6th century. No one could destroy or destroy this temple, but at the same time the monastery was never closed. It is inhabited by Greek Orthodox monks. What is most surprising is that this incredible bush is still growing there. According to legend, this bush is called the Neopalimaya Kupina.

The features of the biological nature of this plant are also amazing. Botanists refer it to rutovy, but more often it is called fraxinella, which can be found in the Mediterranean and the Far East. It grows in the Crimea. On the leaves of this bush are glands, which evaporate the essential oil. The peculiarity of this plant is also in the fact that if during a clear and windless weather you bring a light to it, it will very strongly flare up and this fire will run over all the branches. At the same time the plant itself will not suffer. He is one of a kind, and it can not be transplanted to another place, because this bush will not take root there.

As far back as 324, Elena (the mother of Emperor Constantine) decided to build a chapel on the spot where the burning canopy is located. A plant was transplanted near this chapel. Here it grows today. There is no iconostasis in the chapel that would hide the altar from believers, therefore every pilgrim can see the place where the dome grew. Today it is indicated by a hole in a slab of marble. Above this place is covered with a shield, which depicts a burning bush, as well as other symbols and images that tell the story of origin.

Here no shoes allowedbecause the commandment says so. This chapel is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and some of the icons that hang in the chapel are written specifically on this subject.

Today, the oldest image of the Virgin, which was written in the 17th century, is kept in the Kremlin. However, many lists of the Mother of God were lost under Soviet rule. At the present time, temples are being renovated, and new ones are being built.

Icon Description

The image on the icon consists of two rhombuses, they are concave inward, the edges of the figure form an eight-pointed star, which is also the basis. One of the diamonds depicts the Mother of God, who survived the fire, her face is shown on a green background. The second rhombus symbolizes fire, it is made in bright red colors.

In the center of the shrine is the very image of the Mother of God, which holds her child on one hand, and she grabbed a small ladder with the other hand. Carefully reviewing the image, it shows the sacred plant itself - the Burning Bush.

In this image, the ladder is a symbol of the descent of the Son of God on the sinful earth; nearby the ladder you can see the mountain, which was painted as a symbol of ascent.

This icon depicted a fairly large number of different angels, they symbolize:

  • wisdom,
  • talent
  • teaching,
  • giving
  • miracle work.

Three spirits are depicted in different parts of the icon, each of them has its own role. Spirit of the Lord - the artists depicted him with a big crown on his head and Jesus in his hands. Another spirit has a gate in its hands. The third spirit - has a knightly appearance, it is depicted with a sword in its hands, symbolizes protection and patronage.

Wonderworking icons

For all the time of its existence, the shrine has done a lot of miracles, there are so many different stories about them, each of them is impressive in its own way. Even a person who does not believe in miracles, begins to believe in them.

In Sinai, where the Catherine's Monastery was built and still stands today, this very thorn bush grew, which is depicted on the icon. Its structure is similar to the most common raspberry bush. There was a dried twig on it, at one moment it began to sprout, thus giving birth to a new plant, this does not exist anywhere else in the world. Anyone can come and pray to this miracle and take a sprig or a leaf from a bush.

Almost three hundred years ago, in the city of Slavyansk there were constant fires of residential buildings, local residents did not understand why this was happening, who was doing it, and how to deal with it. However, one of the many local residents suddenly appeared in his eyes the face of the Mother of God, and literally immediately the inhabitants of this city found a woman setting arson.

At the beginning of the twelfth century, in a small village, Yuzha-Nikolskoye, a man purchased a log from a specialized service to melt a furnace in his house. When the fire started to burn in the stove, the man saw the image of the Mother of God. At the same time, he and his wife dragged the log out of the furnace and extinguished it. Looking closely, they saw the imprint of the icon on a piece of wood and rubbed it with a rag. There was no limit to the surprise of the family when they saw a new icon with no signs of burning. The couple decided to give the icon to the monastery, which was located in a nearby settlement, where local craftsmen made it into a board of enormous size and worshiped it. Unfortunately, in 2001, the icon was stolen by unidentified persons, and to this day no one knows where it is located.

In 2010, terrible fires burned near the village of Mosta, after a while the fire could have engulfed the whole village. Almost the flames approached the church, one of the priests took this icon of Neopalimy with him and began to pray, its importance for the village was incredibly important, after just a few minutes the wind changed direction and the fire went to another side from the village.

In one village there was a strong fire, one of the people saw a woman standing alone with an icon. The fire was over, and only coal was left of most of the houses, but the house opposite to which this woman stood was strangely untouched.
