New Arrival
Russian Icon - The Holy Martyress Vera (Faith), daughter of St. Sophia

The icon is depicting St. Martyress Vera, daughter of St. Sophia. Saint Sophia the Martyresses had her daughters: Faith (Vera), Hope (Nadezhda), and Love (Lyubov) killed during the reign of Hadrian (117–138). The imperial guards took Sophia's daughters one by one, from the oldest to the youngest and beat and tortured them to death in an attempt to force their mother to renounce her faith in Christ. Afterward, Sophia buried her daughters' bodies and remained by their graves for three days until she died herself.
