Nickname and appellate icon on Mount Athos. According to the tradition before this icon, the archangel Gabriel, taught the great man “Axion estin” to a monk during the 10th c. The Virgin Mary and the icon received this name from the great man “Axion estin”.
The image of the Virgin Mary is, in the conscience of the faithful, always respected and loved, but accessible and not distant. It lives in the hearts of the people, in the iconostasis of the houses, in the cobbled streets of their islands, on the slopes of the mountains. Always and everywhere, the female, intimate form that comforts, heals, protects, alerts. Her name is in the mouths of the people, in every prayer or supplication and in every eulogy. A companion in joy and a helper in sorrow, the Virgin Mary has passed and has been fermented in the conscience of the faithful as part of their daily life.
