Theotokos. Icon. Theotokos of Tikhvin

The Theotokos of Tikhvin (Tikhvinskaya) is one of the most celebrated and beautiful wonderworking icons of the Mother of God (Theotokos). Traditionally, it is said to be one of the icons painted by St. Luke the Evangelist.

The appearance of the icon is celebrated on June 26.

During the Soviet oppression of the Russian Orthodox Church, the icon was brought to the United States for safekeeping.

The icon was taken out of Russia for safety by a Russian Orthodox bishop from Kolka parish and later Bishop of Riga - John (Garklavs) of Chicago. In the period between 1949 and 2004 the icon was stored in Chicago, USA. It was returned to Tikhvin, Russia in 2004 by his spiritual son, Fr. Sergei Garklavs of Chicago. The icon is kept at the Tikhvin Assumption Monastery, where it was kept prior to 1917.
