Theotokos, Searcher of the Lost-In the Province of Kaluga in mid-eighteenth century, a Russian peasant named Oboukhov was traveling in mid-winter. The weather was cold and threatening, and while on his way a fierce snowstorm came up. As he proceeded through the storm, it got worse, and soon he lost his way. His horse became exhausted and could go no further and he came to a place that was impassable. He then realized the limit of his ability and began to pray to the Mother of God.
