Mother of God of Koloch: The Koloch Icon of the Mother of God manifested itself in the year 1413 during the reign of Basil I, 15 miles from the city of Mozhaisk, in the vicinity of Koloch in the Smolensk governia. A peasant of this village by the name of Luke found the holy icon and took it to his home. One of his household was paralyzed. The sick one put his forehead to the icon with faith and received complete healing.
This became known through the surrounding area and many of the suffering began to flock to the wonderworking icon and they received help from the Mother of God. Luke afterwards took the icon to Mozhaisk and from there to Moscow. At the capital, Metropolitan Photius, together with a gathering of clergy and a multitude of the people, visited the holy icon. As the icon was carried through Moscow many of the sick were healed of their infirmities. Later they returned the icon to Mozhaisk.
At the place where the icon appeared, a church was built in honour of the Mother of God. Here the holy icon was housed. With the offerings of the peasant Luke and others, Prince Andrew Dimitrievich built a monastery on this site called the Kolochsk or Mozhaisk.

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
