The Holy Smolensk Icon of the Mother of God
Commemorated on July 28
The Holy Smolensk Icon of the Mother of God is located at the Holy Trinity Sergiev Lavra in the Smolensk church on the left side of the Royal-doors. From this icon in 1730 there received healing a psalomschik (cantor), whose hands were bent and rigid to the back. The Mother of God appeared to him in a vision and healed him. This occurrence was attested to by physicians.
