Mother of God ~ Queen of All

The day after Christmas is
the Synaxis of the Theotokos.
So I thought that on this the most beautiful of days
to show you an exquisite icon of the
Mother of God, Queen of All.

This icon is a copy of the miracle working icon
of the Mother of God, Queen of All 
that has healed many of cancer.

The Mother of God's face is so kind and calm.
This icon is done by an icongrapher who is at
Martha's church of St. George in Ohio.
It seems that I hear new prayer requests for
those with cancer {almost} daily.
I was comforted by the kindness of the Theotokos' face,
when I think of all those suffering...
Akathist to this icon is found here, here, here and here.
Youtube videos of the service of this Akathist are found here.
On this day that celebrates the Mother of God,
may we be comforted by her and by her Son
who came to dwell among us and bear our sorrows.
