Description

The Guiding Mother of God Weeping Icon

This Icon is from St. Nicholas Albanian Orthodox Church in Chicago. The Guiding Mother of God is also referred to as "Our Lady of Chicago." It was painted some 23 years ago.

The Mother of God in this style of icon is depicted as "the one who points the way." According to an ancient tradition of the Church, this style of icon of the Blessed Mother is traced back to an original painting of her done by the Evangelist Luke. It is said that the Theotokos herself gave her blessings to this portrait, saying"My Blessing will always remain with this Icon." St. Luke is said to have sent this Icon, along with the text of his Gospel, to Theophilus in Antioch. In the middle of the fifth century, this holy image was taken to the city of Constantinople by the Empress Eudoxia, as a present to her mother in law Pulcheria. It was in the ninth century that the name "Hodigitria" began to be used in reference to this special painting.

In the reproduction of this icon, the Christ Child always appears seated erect on His Mother's left arm. The Infant is no longer shown as a "Baby," but rather as the "Pre-Eternal God," full of wisdom. He holds a scroll on His left Hand, and is shown giving a blessing with His Right Hand. The Mother of God is portrayed in a majestic manner. Her right hand is pointing to Her Son, in a grand gesture of presentation. It is the Son of God, the One we must follow and obey.

On September 1988, moisture was visually noticed on the face of the Holy Virgin and remained visible for almost two weeks. On July 23, 1995 the holy Icon began to weep copiously as She had originally on December 6th 1986.

This picture is 8" wide x 10" tall and printed on light cardstock with satin finish. Text on verso + copyright date.

The artwork will be a nice addition to your collection of devotional prints. It is ready to frame and can be mounted in a traditional way with glass and displayed in your sacred space as meditation aid. Our Lady's Mantle watermark shown on the image is not on actual print.
