Russian Icon - Presentation of the Virgin Mary at the Temple

The icon is depicting The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, known in the East as The Entry of the Most Holy Theotokos into the Temple  a liturgical feast celebrated on November 21 by the Catholic, Orthodox Churches, and some Anglo-Catholic Churches.

According to that text, Mary's parents, Joachim and Anne, who had been childless, received a heavenly message that they would have a child. In thanksgiving for the gift of their daughter, they brought her, when still a child, to the Temple in Jerusalem to consecrate her to God. Tradition held that she was to remain there to be educated in preparation for her role as Mother of God. In Eastern Orthodox tradition, this is one of the days when women named Mary are celebrating their name day.

Physicians were not able to help her with her ailment and in a vision, she was told to go to Moscow and pray before the icon of the Mother of God bearing the inscription "Soothe my Sorrows;" in the same vision, she was shown the icon. Not finding that icon in the church, she turned to the priest for help, who then brought all of the ancient icons down from the bell tower. One of the icons bore the inscription "Soothe my Sorrows."

The monastery's tradition suggests that the icon was written during the tenth century. ”Let them and all Orthodox Christians come to Me in their necessities, and I shall not forsake them. All their petitions will be granted by My Son, because of My intercession with Him. My icon shall be called ‘She who is Quick to Hear,’ for I shall speedily fulfill the petitions of those who hasten to it.” In Russia, copies of the wonderworking Athonite image “She who is Quick to Hear” were always venerated with great love and fervent prayer. Many of them were glorified by miracles. In particular, there were cases of healing from the plague and from demonic possession.

Small Russian Icon - Our Lady of Joy to All Who Sorrow with Coins in gilt brass revetment cover

Mother of God, Joy of All Who Sorrow of Saint Petersburg  is a miracle working icon celebrated throughout Russia. On July 23, 1888, during the severe thunderstorm, lightning struck a chapel at a glass factory in St. Petersburg, burning the interior walls of the church, but leaving the icon depicting Mother of God, Joy of All Who Sorrow unharmed. From the violent disturbance of the air, the icon was knocked to the floor, the poor-box broke open, and twelve copper coins adhered to the icon in various places; afterwards many miracles were worked by the grace of the holy icon. The design of this icon depicts the Mother of God, standing in paradise with her Son above her. Along both sides of the icon, framing the Mother of God, are suppliants, asking for her intercession with angels assisting them. The 12 coins are depicted throughout the central field of the icon.
