The Tolga Icon of the Mother of God: how does the miraculous image help, prayer
The miraculous icons of the Virgin are greatly revered throughout the Orthodox world. It is said that the Tolg icon of the Mother of God healed John the Terrible himself when he could not walk from the pain in his legs.
A familiar neighbor on the landing told us about this icon.
Miraculously healed the baby, which doctors could not make a correct diagnosis. Mother prayed fervently to the Mother of God, confessed and received communion. The result was a complete recovery of the baby.
In the article I will tell about the appearance of the icon to the Bishop of Rostov, miracles of healing and about prayer to her.
The holy image was granted by heaven in the most miraculous way in 1314. One day, Bishop Prokhor went to Yaroslavl on church matters. The path ran along the Volga River, and for spending the night pilgrims chose the area where the river Tolga flows into the Volga.
When it got dark, the bishop saw a pillar of fire emanating from the sky. He went to that place and saw that a bright light emanates from the image of the Virgin with the God-child in her arms.
The bishop began to fervently pray to Saint Lika and spent the rest of the night in a prayer vigil. Returning to the parking lot, Prokhor noticed that his rod remained at the place of the night prayer vigil.
When the servants returned from the search site, they brought with them the miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary: she was next to the rod. Prokhor immediately recognized on the icon the image of the Mother of God, who appeared to him in a vision.
Pilgrims knelt and praised the Virgin.
On the same day the place where the icon was found was cleared for the construction of the church. During construction, God’s miracles took place, as the temple was built in just one day. In the evening he was consecrated, and all the sick people were healed.
Later, a Tolgsky Monastery was erected near the church.
For about 600 years, the Tolga Monastery stood, and after the revolution a children’s colony was opened there. The image of the Mother of God was transferred to the Yaroslavl Museum, and only in 2003 the holy Lik returned to his monastery.
The holy face of Tolga Our Lady is the protective cover of the city of Yaroslavl.
The icon is located in the Assumption Cathedral, its distinctive feature is the sign of divinity overhead. Above the image of the Mother of God with the God-Infant, who rested her cheek against her, are the archangels Gabriel and Michael.
Lists of icons have the same miraculous power as a prototype.
Tsar Ivan the Terrible suffered greatly from pain in his legs. Hearing about the miraculous icon, he asked to bring him to the Tolga monastery.
The sovereign prayed for a long time and fervently, and the Mother of God bestowed healing on him. From the monastery, John came out on his own feet, completely healed.
The miraculous icon is honored for the sheer miracles that it performed. During the great fire in Yaroslavl in the 15th century, the icon was not affected by the fire. In the 18th century, during a severe drought and lack of food, the icon saved the inhabitants of the city from starvation.
There was also the miracle of the resurrection of a dead child.
In 1392, the icon began to stream, giving the believers a good sign. Nowadays, with the help of a prayer to the icon, people are relieved of pain in their legs and return home without crutches.
The icon heals both those who ask for help themselves and at the request of relatives and friends.
What does the Tolg icon of the Mother of God help? Believers with a sincere heart pray the holy face:
- about maintaining faith in the heart;
- about getting rid of lack of money and need;
- about getting rid of bodily / mental ailments;
- about the gift of a spouse and children;

Often believers pray to the icon in order to atone for their sin or guilt in front of someone. Holy Face to those who ask will bestow mercy and grace, salvation from anxieties and troubles.
Prayer to the icon of the Mother of God of Tolga:
In 1995, an article appeared in the Yaroslavl newspaper, which was written by the grandmother of a healed 14-year-old grandson. The boy had a hump and a secondary fracture of the vertebra. The prayers, the anointing with lamp oil before the icon, performed a miracle.
Doctors could not explain where the hump and fracture had gone. It was a real miracle, manifested by Our Lady in our day.
In the same year, with the help of a prayer to the icon, a boy was healed, who could only walk with crutches. The boy was brought to the Tolgsky Monastery by his parents from Volgograd.
The child went back without crutches.
