At this icon the monk created Virgin Mary of Great Grace with the technique of lithography. The most famous Virgin Mary is the one at Tinos island also Known as «Megalochari», «Our Lady of Tinos» or «The All-Holy Bringer of Good News». The church at Tinos island was built around a miraculous icon which according to tradition was found after the Virgin appeared to the nun Pelagia and revealed to her the place where the icon was buried.

Specifically in June 1822, Pelagia, a nun from the convent of Kechrovounion had visions of the Holy Virgin who told her how much She had suffered after being buried under the ground for many years. The icon was found on the very first days after the creation of the modern Greek State, henceforth Our Lady of Tinos was declared the patron saint of the Greek nation. The icon was at the time thought to be the handwork of St. Luke the Evangelist and is widely believed to be the source of numerous miracles.
