Περιγραφή

St. Elisabeth, the mother of St. John the Forerunner, was sister to St. Anna, the mother of the Mother of God. As Zachariah, her husband, was serving one day in the Temple in Jerusalem, an angel of God appeared to him informing him that his wife Elizabeth would bear a son in answer to their prayers, for Zachariah and Elisabeth were both old. Later, when the Lord Christ was born and Herod began killing the children in Bethlehem, he sent men to find Zachariah’s son and kill him. Seeing the soldiers, St. Elizabeth took John in her arms — he was eighteen months old at that time — and fled from the house with him to a rocky and desert region. When she saw where the soldiers had driven them, she cried out to the mountain “O mountain of God, receive a mother with her child!” and the rock opened and hid the mother and child inside itself. Herod, furious that John had not been killed, ordered that Zachariah be cut down before the altar. Forty days after Zachariah’s death, blessed Elizabeth also entered into rest. The child John stayed in the wilderness, fed by an angel and guarded by God’s providence, until that day when he appeared by the Jordan. St. Elizabeth is commemorated with the Prophet Zachariah on September 5.

The icon of the saint is displayed in the classic style on a beveled, byzantine red contour, MDF plaque.
