Name of the Virgin Mary on Mount Athos (Chilandari Monastery). It was named so because in Her icon she is depicted having three hands.
The relevant narrative is as follows. According to tradition or icon, this was a family heirloom of St. John of Damascus. Prior to becoming a monk at the monastery of St. Sava the Blessed in Palestine, he was the first adviser to the Muslim Caliph of Damascus, Walid (705-7). At that time the Iconoclasm broke out.
Damascene then emerged as an ardent and ardent supporter of the worship of the holy Icons.
The emperor Leo III Isaurus, the supporter of the Iconoclasm, accused Damascene of deceit in the Caliph, convincing him that John was seeking the fall of his power.
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.
