Icon of the Mother of God "the Softener of Evil Hearts"

Commemorated on May 28

The "Softener (or "Consoler") of Evil Hearts" Icon of the Mother of God is similar to the "Seven Swords" Icon (August 13). It depicts the Theotokos with seven swords piercing Her heart (Luke 2:35). There are three swords on the right side, three on the left, and one from below. The icon appears to be of Western origin.

The "Softner of Evil Hearts" icon is commemorated on the Sunday of All Saints.
