Description of the icon of the Most Holy Theotokos “Soften Evil Hearts” (“Semistrelnaya”)
The face of the Mother of God “The Softening of Evil Hearts” is very similar to the “Seven-arrow” icon of the Most Holy Theotokos, therefore both are united under the name “Seven-arrow”. The difference between them lies in the arrangement of arrows:
- the “Semistrelnoy” arrows, pierced the heart of the Virgin, are located on two sides: three — on the one hand, four — on the other;
- at the Mother of God “The Softening of Evil Hearts”, the arrows are arranged as follows: three on the left, three on the right, one on the bottom.
On the icon “The Softening of Evil Hearts”, the Most Pure Mother of God is depicted alone, with a heart pierced by seven swords (arrows). Sometimes there is also a variation where the Most Pure Virgin Mary is written with the baby Christ on her lap. Seven swords (arrows) are the symbol of the prophecy given by St. Simeon the God-receiver in the Jerusalem temple at the time of the Presentation.
He predicted that the lot of the Virgin was prepared for many trials, sorrows and grief at the sight of how her Son would suffer. Swords are not chosen by chance: they mean bloodshed.
The figure 7 itself is endowed with a symbolic meaning. In the Holy Scripture 7 is a sign of completeness, an excess of something. In the case of the icon, it is the fullness of grief and the heart of torment that befell the Blessed Virgin Mary during her earthly life, the fullness of her grief.
The Virgin Mary suffers not so much because of the agony of Jesus Christ, as of the seven mortal human sins that pierce her soul. Thus, swords (arrows) are also a symbol of sinful passions.
The origin of the icon of the «Seven Shooters» of the Mother of God («Softener of evil hearts»)
The icon of the “Semistrelny” Mother of God is extremely revered among believers. The birthplace of the icon is Vologda. Initially, she stayed in St. John the Theological Church, which is located on the banks of the River Toshni.
This river flows near Vologda. There is one curious legend about its origin.
Tells the story about one peasant from Kadnikovsky district who suffered for many years from incurable limp. One day he saw a dream in which the Divine voice told that his illness would be healed if he found the icon of the Most Holy Mother of God in the bell tower of the Theological Church, prayed to her and asked for healing.
The peasant came to the temple, told about his dream, asked to let him inside the bell tower, but the clergy refused to fulfill his request, and so 2 times. The man came for the third time, and his perseverance persistently made their own.
The peasant was allowed to climb the bell tower, and he immediately found the image of the “Semistrelny” Mother of God.
The icon served as a staircase, and the bell-ringers simply walked along it, unaware of anything. Horrified by accidental blasphemy, the clergymen cleaned and washed the image well, brought it into proper form, and then served a prayer service, during which the peasant prayed earnestly.
Immediately after this, a miracle happened: his illness receded, he was completely healed. So the Orthodox Church found another icon — the image of the “Seven-way” Pure Virgin Mary.
The image of the “Semistrelny” Mother of God was especially famous in 1830, when a cholera epidemic raged in Vologda. Residents of the city held a procession around the city walls, headed by an icon.
After that, the disease subsided, and soon the epidemic ceased completely.
The miraculous icon disappeared from St. John the Theological Church after the fateful 1917. Since 1930 there have been no worship services.
The parish resumed its activities in 2001, but the icon of the “Semistrelny” Mother of God has still not returned to her homeland.
