O ye Apostles from afar, being now gathered together here in the vale of Gethsemane, give burial to my body; and Thou, O my Son and my God, receive Thou my spirit. — Doxasticon Hymn of the Dormition

At the end of the Mother of God's life, the Apostles were miraculously gathered to her bedside. They are shown mourning beside her body as her Son personally receives her spirit, depicted as a newborn child.

As she was carried to the grave, one of Jews rushed in to overturn the Virgin's coffin. Like Uzzah, who was struck dead for touching the Ark (2 Kingdoms/2 Samuel 6), an angel appeared and cut off the hands of the man when he dared to touch the New Ark of the Covenant.

Upon reaching the tomb, the Apostles opened the coffin, and found she had been taken bodily into heaven.

This icon comes from the Sinai monastery of Saint Catherine.

    From Grief to Eternity

    Posted by Natalia on Sep 23rd 2021

    I chose this icon for the expressions and gestures of grief among the apostles. If you have lost loved ones, this icon might give you comfort in knowing that others have shared those same feelings. Ultimately, we look forward to unity in the Kingdom. I ordered a small, and the figures are very tiny, but I did not have room for a larger size. Even so, the quality is good.
