Grand Duchess Tatiana and Nicholas II: 1910.
May our prayers, no matter how small, reach those who most need them.
This is beautiful!
An ikon of the Mother of God found at the Ipatiev House after the murder of the Imperial Family: 1918.
96 years ago Emperor Nicholas II, his family and their four servants were brutally murdered in the cellar of the Ipatiev House.
Through their suffering in exile, the Imperial family maintained their love of one another and their faith in God.
Today they are revered as Passion Bearers in the Russian Orthodox Church. The Emperor, Empress, three of their daughters and their four servants rest together in the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in St. Petersburg. The remains of the two youngest children have yet to receive a state burial.
Rest in peace.
