Pictures were not only beautiful but inspiring. I was struck with the reverence in the faces of the people, and all the crowds of people to receive back the Tikhvin Icon. Also, all the women in the crowds even in the streets, not just in the churches, all with head coverings. The sight is humbling, regardless of one's view.
Simply amazing when one recalls that this in the former USSR after 70 some years of persecution of the Orthodox Church. Indeed, God preserved His people. Glory to God.
Would that someday the same can be witnessed of the Orthodox in America.
Thanks for sharing.
