Wooden Icon of Saints Sergius of Radonezh and Seraphim of Sarov

The Monk Seraphim of Sarov, a miracle worker who bore the name Prokhor before his tonsure, was born on July 19, 1759, into a pious merchant family from the city of Kursk. Already from childhood, his life was marked by signs of God's mercy. As a child, he carelessly fell from the church bell tower, but remained unharmed. Then, as a youth, he became seriously ill, but the Mother of God promised his mother in a vision that he would be healed, and when he was placed at the Kursk Icon of the Mother of God of the Sign, he quickly recovered.

At the age of seventeen, the young man finally decided to leave the world, and his mother blessed him with a simple copper cross, which he did not part with until the end of his life. For two years he labored in the Sarov Assumption Hermitage, known for the strict implementation of the monastic rule, and then on August 18, 1786, he took monastic vows with the name Seraphim, which means “fiery.” Almost immediately he was elevated to the rank of hierodeacon, and then hieromonk.

After this, the monk took upon himself the feat of living in the desert, cutting down his cell on the Sarovka River. Experiencing temptations from the devil, Saint Seraphim intensified his feat and prayed on a stone for a thousand days and nights with raised hands: “God, be merciful to me, a sinner.” Then the devil, powerless to spiritually overthrow the ascetic, persuaded the robbers to attack him and inflict mortal wounds on him with an ax. But even after this he was healed by the Mother of God, and he kindly forgave the caught robbers.

Upon recovery, the monk took upon himself the feat of silence for three years. For his exploits, the monk was awarded the gifts of clairvoyance and miracle-working, and after a long retreat he began to accept everyone who came to him for advice and consolation. The monk accompanied his instructions with healings, prophecies and miracles. The main gift that he received for his boundless love for God is an all-encompassing love for his neighbors. “Christ is risen, my joy!” — with these words the God-bearing elder greeted everyone who came to him.

The Monk Seraphim based his simple words of edification on the Holy Scriptures and the works of the holy fathers. Seraphim of Sarov especially honored the holy champions and zealots of Orthodoxy, and he called on everyone who came to maintain unshakable faith in God. The monk lovingly convinced many schismatics to abandon their delusions. In 1833, the Monk Seraphim of Sarov went to the Lord in peace and was found already lifeless on his knees in prayer before the icon of the Mother of God “Tenderness,” in front of which he prayed all his life. But even after his death, many miracles were performed at the saint’s grave, which were carefully collected by their witnesses, and in 1903 the saint was canonized.

The icon is made by printing on a wooden board. Paints are mineral, do not fade with time. The thickness of the board is 2 cm. The board is covered with soil by hand. The image is covered with wax. Each icon has a metal mount on the back side so that you can hang the icon on the wall.
