  • Accidentally wandered into a monastery, although each summer are in Uglich. But just saw a pyramidal Church and stopped. In the Church of the monastery is the wonderworking icon of the Theotokos in full growth. How to login to the left. And there all will understand. Energy pore Lil bastard, old temple soaped centuries worth. And the icon works wonders. One doing marvels. Now there ... to her, the icon go.
