Mother of God of "All Who Mourn"

Mother of God of "All Who Suffer"


The Mother of God is shown on this icon in full form, in regal garb, with a crown on her head. Before her are people who are plagued by various illnesses and sorrows and are led by angels. In addition, Saint Martyr Paraskevi of Rome. Above the blessing God the Father. Icon feast day: October 24.


This icon of the Mother of God became known at the end of the 17th century. The sister of Patriarch Joachim of Moscow suffered from a serious illness for a long time. One day during the prayer she heard a voice: “Evfimija! In you are suffering, why don't you take refuge in the One that heals everyone? In the Church of the Transfiguration of my Son there is my image called "The Joy of All Sorrowful". Ask a priest to bring this picture, and after he has celebrated a supplication service with a consecration of water, you will be healed." Evfimija heeded All Saints Mother's command and got well.


St. Mart. Paraskevi of Rome (July 26 and October 28) was a preacher and martyr who lived in Iconium, now Konya in Turkey. It is said that she converted Anthony “the Great”. When asked about her name in court during the persecutions under Diocletian, she replied that her name was Christ, whereupon she was martyred in Iconium.


Nice, fine painting.
