The faithful arrived at St. Tikhon Monastery in South Canaan Township, Pennsylvania. They were eager to see and reverence the monastery's beautiful icons. This year marks the 108th annual pilgrimage to the facility.

From the article:
"In part, our icons are our windows into heaven. We feel closer to God and the saints," said Heather McNulty of Rochester, N.Y. "When we have a miracle-producing icon, as we did today, it just fills the air with love and peace. It's a very intense, spiritual experience."

America's oldest Orthodox monastery, St. Tikhon's houses one of the few Orthodox museums and icon repositories in the country, according to the monastery. The pilgrimage opened Friday with a greeting of the weeping icon that arrived that day from Hawaii.

Charlie Rose: "If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?"

Fran Lebowitz: "Everything. There is not one thing with which I am satisified."
