Commemorated on August 26
The “Tenderness” Icon of the Most Holy Mother of God was found in the
monastery of the caves in 1521, and was transferred to the city of
Pskov by the pious Christians Basil and Theodore. The Icon is
particularly renowned for the deliverance of Pskov and the Pskov Caves
monastery from the army of Stephen Bathory (1533-1586) in 1581. It is
commemorated on May 21, June 23, August 26, October 7, and on the
Seventh Sunday of Pascha.
The Tenderness Icon of the Mother of God
is of the Eleousa (Umilenie) type, and is regarded as the patroness of
the city of Pskov.
The October 7 commemoration was established in
thanksgiving for the deliverance of Pskov from the invading army of
Napoleon in 1812.
