The Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God has been one of the most revered icons in the Russian Orthodox Church for over 600 years. The Return of the Icon tells the story of its extraordinary journey into exile during WWII, through war-torn Russia and Eastern Europe to safety in the United States, and its triumphant return in the summer of 2004 to the newly restored monastery in Tikhvin.
