Russian Icon - Saint Joasaph, Bishop of Belgorod

Saint Joasaph of Belgorod (Иоасаф Белгородский; †1754) was an 18th-century Russian Orthodox hierarch, bishop of Belgorod from 1748 until his death. His remains were found to be incorrupt, and after many miracles, he was glorified by the Eastern Orthodox Church in 1911. Before the First World War, Ioasaph's relics were greatly venerated and were brought out for the curing of the sick, when great crowds came hoping for a miraculous cure. One who attended such an occasion wrote "Now, it is hard to imagine that sight: thousands and thousands of sick, bent, crippled, possessed, and blind people stood and lay on both sides of the road, along which the saint's relics were to be carried."
