Russian icon - Joy to All Who Sorrow Mother of God of Moscow

Russian icon - Joy to All Who Sorrow Mother of God of Moscow

Mother of God, Joy of All Who Sorrow of Moscow is the name of a popular wonderworking Russian Orthodox icon. The icon dates to a miracle that occurred on October 24, 1688, when a woman named Euphemia received healing from sickness after obeying a voice telling her to find this icon and have the priest celebrate a prayer with blessing of water. The design of this icon depicts the Mother of God, depicted full-figured standing with her Son in Heaven and God the Father above her in the clouds. Along both sides of the icon, framing the Mother of God, depicted are many suppliants asking for her intercession. The tenderness and kindness of a loving mother are evident in her face as She stands in paradise and yet among us.

Russian Icon - Our Lady of Smolensk

Russian Icon - Our Lady of Smolensk

Our Lady of Smolensk is the name of an ancient miracle-working icon and one of the most highly venerated icons in Russia. According to tradition, after the fall of Constantinople, the original icon painted by St. Luke surfaced in Russia, where it was placed in the Assumption Cathedral in Smolensk and therefore referred to as Our Lady of Smolensk. The original icon, dated by art historians to the 11th century, is now believed to have been destroyed by fire during the German occupation of Smolensk in 1941, but a great number of copies were made throughout the century, some of the considerable historical and artistic value of their own.

Finely executed on a golden background. Four selected saints on the borders: the Guardian Angel, St. Boniface, St. Venerable Taisia of Egypt, and St. Eudokia of Heliopolis.

Russian Icon - Christ Pantocrator

Russian Icon - Christ Pantocrator

Christ Pantocrator refers to a specific depiction of Christ. The most common translation of Pantocrator is "Almighty" or "All-powerful". In this understanding, Pantocrator is a compound word formed from the Greek words for "all" and the noun "strength" (κρατος). This is often understood in terms of potential power; i.e., the ability to do anything, omnipotence. The iconic image of Christ Pantocrator was one of the first images of Christ developed in the Early Christian Church and remains a central icon of the Eastern Orthodox Church. In the half-length image, Christ holds the Gospels in his left hand and makes the gesture of blessing with his right.
