Feast of the Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God
(June 26)



This icon was in Constantinople in 1383, but, seventy years before the fall of that city, it suddenly appeared in the sky near the village of Tikhvin in northern Russia. A church and a monastery were built where it came to rest. Countless miracles were wrought through this wonderworking icon; many of the sick, especially, receiving healing from it.
