The Mother of God is shown on this icon in full form, without the child. Before her are people who are plagued by various illnesses and sorrows and are led by angels. 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.

 

Above: Christ as high priest and the archangels Michael and Gabriel with three cherubim.
