Icon of the Mother of God “of the Three Hands” on Mt Athos

The Icon of the Mother of God “Of the Three Hands”: The wonderworking icon, before which St John of Damascus (December 4) received healing of his amputated hand, was given by him to the Lavra of St Sava the Sanctified. In the thirteenth century the icon was in Serbia, and afterwards it was miraculously transported to Athos to the Hilandar monastery. A more detailed account about the icon is located under June 28.
