Icon with polished gold with Saint Anne

Saint Anne was the mother of Virgin Mary and is considered the protector of childless couples. She holds an important position in the Orthodox religion, while on Mount Athos she is considered one of the most beloved persons, as the mother of the Most Holy Theotokos. It is worth mentioning that the original icon was created by the Theophilaion brotherhood in the Holy Skete of Saint Anne at Mount Athos.

According to tradition, Saint Anne was the wife of Joachim and since the couple had no children, she begged God day and night to give them one. Eventually, their request was granted and God sent an angel telling them that they would have a child whose name would be remembered by all the world. And indeed Saint Anne, who was old and her husband had a baby girl, whom they christened Mariam.
