The Chernigov - Gethsemane Icon of the Mother of God is a copy of the famed Ilyin - Chernigov Icon of the Mother of God (April 16), which was to be found at the Trinity-Ilyin monastery near Chernigov on Mount Boldina, and where in the eleventh century Saint Anthony of the Kiev Caves struggled in asceticism. Described the miracles of this icon in his book THE BEDEWED FLEECE. He wrote in conclusion: The end of the booklet, but not of the miracles of the Most Holy Theotokos, for who can count them? The grace-bearing power of this icon is manifest also in its copies. It is remarkable that the first miracle of this icon was witnessed on the day of the Church New Year, September 1, 1869, when the twenty-eight-year-old peasant of Tula governance, Thekla Adrianova, was healed, after being completely crippled for nine years. By the beginning of the twentieth century, more than 100 miracles had been recorded.
By its great esteem the icon benefited the ascetics of the Gethsemane skete: the schemamonk Philip (+ May 18, 1868), the founder of the cave monastery, and his three sons, the hieroschemamonks Ignatius (+ 1900), Porphyrius + 1905? And Basil (+ April 1, 1915). They preserved accounts of the deep love, which the hieromonk Elder Isidore (+ February 3, 1908) displayed for the Chernigov-Gethsemane Icon.
