Russian Icon - Joy to All Who Sorrow Mother of God with coins

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.
