Вчера (14.03, 13:30) Параклет (обещанный Иисусом Дух Истины) молился вблизи иконы Державная о явлении добрым людям Земли нового аватара Бога Солнечной системы, который на этот раз прибудет на облаке славы и в сопровождении Силы Небесной. Остаточная пыль сметается в преддверии Его появления.

Икона, о которой вы говорите, была найдена 2 (15) марта 1917 года, в день отречения царя Николая II. Богоматерь держит на коленях Параклета, владыку Святой Руси и всего мира.
