Description

Engraved Serigraph with Virgin Mary Gorgoepikoos

The prototype icon of Virgin Mary Gorgoepikoos is located in the Holy Monastery of Docheiari of Mount Athos since 1646.  She protects the monks from every offense and insult, but also those who turn to her by faith, asking for her brokerage. According to Orthodox tradition in 1664 a monk  heard a voice telling him: «Do not come past here with a torch, leaving smoke on my icon», but he didn’t pay much attention.

The voice was heard again and again and after some time the monk got blind. After that he spent all his time in front of the icon praying to Virgin Mary to forgive and heal him. His prayer was granted when, for the third time, a voice was heard from the icon which told him that his supplication had been heard. Virgin Mary told the monks that they should leave all their needs at her «hands». She would hear them speedily, for her name is «Gorgoepikoos» which means «she who hears speedily».
