Mother of God Icon
The Mother of God
The original of this Icon, the Panagia Ierosolymitissa is at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. It is world renowned and many copies of it are everywhere. The Icon we offer is a digital restoration of that Icon.
Noteworthy about the Ierosolymitissa Icon is what Saint Païsios of the Holy Mountain said about it:
“Our Lady looks very much like the icon of the Virgin Mary of Jerusalem, it is exactly the same! I have seen her enough times to know that this icon resembles her very much.” + Elder (now Saint) Païsios of the Holy Mountain
Ἡ Παναγία μας πολὺ μοιάζει μὲ τὴν εἰκόνα τῆς Παναγίας τῆς Ἱεροσολυμίτισσας. Εἶναι ἐντελῶς ἴδια! Τὴν ἔχω δεῖ ἀρκετὲς φορές. Ναί, δὲν γνωρίζω ἄλλη εἰκόνα ποὺ νὰ τῆς μοιάζει τόσο πολύ. + Γέροντας Παΐσιος, Ὁ Γέρων Παΐσιος, σ. 272.
