The Most Holy Theotokos the "She Who Ripens the Grain".

In his earthly life, the Holy Elder Ambrose of Optina blessed the creation of a new icon of the Most Holy Theotokos and named it, "She Who Ripens the Grain". He indicated by this, that the Mother of God is the helper of people in their labors of working for their daily bread. The saint himself also prayed before this icon often and taught his spiritual daughters, ­the nuns of the Shamordino monastery, to pray before it. 

The first miracle from the holy icon was witnessed in 1891, when throughout Russia was a famine because of crop-failure, but in the Kaluga district and on the fields of the Shamordino Monastery grain was produced. Then again in 1892, a copy of the icon was sent to the Pyatnitsk women’s monastery in the Voronezh district. In this locale drought and famine threatened, but soon after a molieben was served before the icon it rained and ended the drought.

"Rejoice, thou who art full of grace, the Lord is with thee! Grant also unto us, the unworthy, the dew of thy grace, and reveal thy loving­kindness!"

    This icon is very lovely, very beautiful in colors. I love the blue. I placed it on the wall by my bedside where I can kiss it easily.
