The icon of Gerontissa is unique in that it has God’s Mother represented in full growth. She is alone, without the Son. The full growth of the Mother emphasizes Her greatness, determination and strength. The Virgin in prayer asks the Son to help people. The open arms testify to the incessant prayer for all who need it and the readiness to accept any request.
At the feet of Our Lady is a jar filled with oil. The life-giving fluid flows over the edge, which symbolizes the constant fullness of the mercy of the Lord. No matter how many people ask, God will always give a lot more, even over the edge. Only to ask is necessary with faith, in purity and simplicity, in humility and patience.
Icon of the Mother of God Gerontissa, the meaning of which it is difficult to overestimate, more than once has rescued people from death, healed from diseases, cancer, restored the joy of motherhood, prolonged life and helped many to calmly withdraw into the world of God.
