The origin of this icon lies in Karachev, in the province of Orlov. There, in the St. Nikolaev Odrin Monastery, the miraculous icon is kept, copies of which can be found in numerous Moscow churches. The traces of this icon can be traced back to a battle in Shklova (Mogliev province) during 1640. It is not known who painted the original icon, although it is believed that it was brought to Russia from a Russian monastery on Mount Athos. During the reign of Tsar Michael Fyodorovitch (1613-1645), a great battle took place near Shklova, in which the Russians defeated the Poles. In memory of this victory, a copy of the miraculous image was brought to Moscow to the Church of St. Nicholas in Zamoskovoretchie. The softening of my worries Icon of the Most Holy Mother of God was glorified in Moscow by numerous miracles in the second half of the 18th century, especially during a plague in 1771. The icon was brought to Moscow by Cossacks in 1640, during the reign of Tsar Michael (1613 – 1645), and was placed in the Church of St. Nicholas in the Pupishevo district of Moscow.

Their worship was strong. The picture shows the inner suffering of Mary because of her only son, who died unjustly on Golgotha. She looks sad and thoughtful.
