Description

VIRGIN AND CHILD, AXION ESTI (IT IS TRULY MEET) 9474 The original of the icon of the Mother of God called “Axion Esti”, or “It is truly meet,” is kept in the Holy Dormition Katholicon in Karyes, Mt. Athos. In the tenth century the Archangel Gabriel came in monastic clothes to a monk who was keeping vigil before this icon. When the monk began to sing “More honorable than the Cherubim, and beyond compare…” the angel told him that the angelic choirs preface this with “It is truly meet and right to bless thee, Theotokos, ever-blessed all-pure Mother of our God.”
