The “Seven Arrows” Icon of the Mother of God depicts the Virgin’s heart pierced by seven arrows. The original icon stood at the belltower stairway entrance of a church in honor of Holy Apostle John. It faced downwards, so people mistook it for a board and walked on it. Then a cripple had a vision that he would be healed by this icon. The icon was found and glorified; afterwards, the cripple healed. The icon worked miracles during a cholera epidemic. (Aug 13; Silver icon from Fiji, Ebay)
