Inspired by one of the hymns of the Great Compline service, this icon depicts the Mother of God making intercession before her Son on behalf of those who need help, in particular: the cold and naked, the elderly and crippled, those who are traveling, and the sick and the hungry. Angels, the messengers of God, minister to the people. The icon became popular in the late 17th century after a Russian woman was miraculously healed by it. The icon's feast day is celebrated October 24.
This is my second icon purchased from you and certainly not the last one! I really love the quality of your icons, the sizes available (I like the smaller sizes), and the way they stand on their own. Thank you !very much
