Russian Icon - Joy to All Who Sorrow Mother of God

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 Euphymia 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, standing in paradise being crowned by two angels. Along both sides of the icon, framing the Virgin Mary, are suppliants , asking for her intercession with angels assisting them.
