Hagiography with Jesus Christ Merciful in antique painting technique
The icon “Jesus Christ Merciful heals the passions of the faithful” stands out for its original theme and its multifaceted, symbolic composition. The center of hagiography depicts Jesus, accompanied by some of His disciples.
Behind Jesus, the hemorrhoid woman whom the Lord treated during his journey to Iair’s house to heal his daughter is distinguished. This woman suffered from many years of bleeding and no treatment by the doctors of the time was able to cure her. By wrestling with faith in Jesus, with the touch of His own garment, the woman was healed.
A blind man is depicted on the right, but it is not clearly stated who is the two blind people he cured Jesus. If it is the blind man or the blind in Jericho, as described in the Gospel. The second one ascended the commandment of Jesus alone, while in the first he created his own eyes, placing Jesus clay and telling him to go to wash in the Sillaam pool.
This particular icon symbolizes the immense mercy and love with which the Lord surrounds the people. As God the Father, he takes care of his creatures and heals the bodily diseases of those who call upon His name with faith and pure heart.
