Over 17 thousand Russian rescuers on September 17 will take part in a prayer service in honor of the mother of God «burning Bush», the patron Saint of all firefighters, reported the press service of EMERCOM of Russia.

«More than 17 thousand employees of the Ministry of emergency situations across the country 17 September 2017 will participate in the thanksgiving,» reads the message.

According to the press service, in Moscow will be held the festive Liturgy at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. In the event the capital will be attended by the heads and employees of the Ministry, members of their families, cadets and cadets of universities of the system of the emergency Department and firefighters of the Moscow garrison.

It is believed that the Orthodox icon of the Theotokos «burning Bush» protects homes from fire and helps those who are in trouble.

«Burning Bush» image, known from the early centuries of Christianity. It symbolically reflects the old Testament event recorded in the book of Exodus, when herding sheep, Moses saw a burning Bush, came to see «why the Bush was burning with fire but not consumed» and God, calling upon him from the flames, called to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt into the Promised land. For Christians this Bush, not consumed in the fire, became the prototype of the Mother of God, which is not burned in the fire of the Godhead in the immaculate conception.

In Russia this icon was back in 1390 — it was brought to Moscow by Palestinian monks and stored in the Annunciation Cathedral of the Moscow Kremlin. Starting from the XVI century the country began to disperse her numerous listings, many of which are venerated as wonderworking.
