The miraculous icon of the Mother of God "Seeker of the Lost" was already worshipped in the VI century, at the times of the Byzantine emperor Justinian, because it had saved the penitent monk Theophilus of Adana, in Asia Minor.
In Russia this sacred image showed its miraculous powers in Moscow in the XVIII century in the home of a parishioner of the church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Palasach.
He donated the icon to the church under precise directions he received while dreaming. In 1812 after the church had been devastated by the French, the icon was found again and worshipped, and it allowed the sick and the wounded to heal and it gave prodigies in this difficult period.
Now the miraculous image of the Mother of God "Seeker of the Lost" is in Moscow in the church of the Resurrection called Slovuscij in Nezdannaja.
The day of this icon is the 5th of February.
The peculiarities of this icon are:
Jesus is standing and his legs are uncovered to the knee, while some of the Virgin's hair comes out of the veil.
