Icon of the Mother of God “Assuage My Sorrows”

Icon of the Mother of God “Assuage My Sorrows,” painted in the first half of the 18th century. It depicts the Theotokos with her one hand bending toward her head and with the Christ Child sitting on her other hand, who holds a scroll saying “Judge righteously; each show mercy to one another; do not offend widows and orphans, and do not keep malice in your heart towards your brother.” This antique icon is preserved in the Holy Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius in the town of Sergiyev Posad, Russia.
