Stavrotheotokia

10008s

On Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year, and especially on Great and Holy Friday, the Church remembers the crucifixion of our Savior upon the Cross, and the heartfelt lamentation of His mother, the all-pure Theotokos, at the foot of the Cross.

This rare iconographic composition depicts the crucified Lord surrounded by four beloved icons of the Mother of God, which all reflect different aspects the Holy Virgin's maternal grief and faith in her Son: the Smolensk, "Softener of Evil Hearts," "Assuage my Sorrows," and "Sweet Kissing" icons.
