TBILISI (GEORGIA): L’ICONA MIRACOLOSA DELLA MADRE DI DIO (EN)

image

Icon of the Mother of God in the Church of St Peter and St Paul in Tbilisi. This icon was painted in 1994 after a pilgrimage to Cappadocia by some of the church’s parishoners. There they found an old fresco in a disused church of the Mother of God, depicting her with a remote air, gazing though space and time, from the present to the future. An adaptation of this icon was painted by the church’s iconographer onto an old church window shutter. This icon has already proved to be wonder-working; its first miracle was the healing of an atheist.
