Theotokos form the Greek meaning The Mother of God. The source of this icon is found in various hymns in honor of The Theotokos, where she is called the "Joy of the Sorrowful". The composition of this icon has three divisions; Paradise (at the top of the icon), the angels in Heaven, and the poor and the sick of the Earth. The Mother of God, who holds the Christ Child in Her arms, is depicting her role as a champion before Christ. The scrolls bear the inscriptions, "the healing of the sick", and "the clothing of the naked". This icon became popular when Evfimia, Patriarch Ioakim of Moscow's sister, was healed before it on September 24, 1688. She was suffering form an ulcer for a long time and was dying. In a dream she was told by Christ to have the icon brought to her from The Transfiguration Church. She kissed the icon and prayed before it and was cured. Feast Day is Nov. 6.
