Icon of Theotokos 'The Three-Handed' Feast days: July 11 and July 25 (Gregorian calendar) The wonderworking icon of Theotokos was glorified in 736 in Syria. For writing letters condemning the iconoclastic heresy, the Ven. John the Damascene was punished by cutting off his right hand. Through his assiduous prayer before the Theotokos' icon, the hand accreted to the body anew. IN gratitude for the healing, the Saint fixed a silver hand at the icon. To commemorate the event, the icon was called 'The Three-Handed.' At present, the wonderworking icon is kept at Mount Athos, in the Hilandar Monastery. The icon was brought to Russia in 1661, and several copies were made at that time. tsar Nicholas II and his family prayed before the icon on the eve of their tragic death. The faithful would pray before the icon of Theotokos 'The Three-Handed' for the delivery from diseases, especially those of the hands..
