Assuage My Sorrow Mother of God. Russian Orthodox Icon. The original Assuage My Sorrow icon was brought to Moscow in 1640. The icon was later neglected, but was rediscovered by a woman who was suffering paralysis in both her hands and feet. After an akathist was served in front of the Assuage My Sorrow icon, her paralysis miraculously was healed on January 25, 1760. Many other healing miracles occurred around this icon during a Moscow plague in 1771.
