Lithograph with Panagia Gorgoypikoo

A wonderful lithograph with the representation of Panagia Gorgoypikoos. As it is known, the miraculous icon of Panagia Gorgoypikoos has been located in the Holy Monastery of Dochiari on Mount Athos since 1646. In fact, it got this name after a miracle. According to tradition, one of the monks was passing in front of the icon of the Virgin Mary with lit torches, blackening it, until a voice was heard asking him to stop.

The monk did not pay attention and continued, as a result of which a little later he lost the light. Then he realized that the voice he heard was that of the Virgin Mary and begged her to take pity on him. The Virgin Mary, as a merciful mother, heard the prayer and gave him the light saying: “I am the Lady of this Monastery and I quickly obey those who invoke me and grant them their requests for salvation”.
