A small wooden icon of Mother of God of unexpected Joy, Russia, middle of 19 century.
The prayers are addressed to the Virgin when despair and sorrow overwhelmed the soul, when there is no hope for other help. Healing, calming the soul bestows the icon "Unexpected joy." They pray for health and heal. They ask for intercession in worldly affairs. Desperate spouses pray for the birth of the child, the onset of pregnancy. Forgiveness is asked by the proud, mired in lawless deeds. They ask about the missing relatives, the Mother of God beg for family reunion. Protection is requested from evil people and slander. Poor people get help, and oath-criminals get public accusation. Sudden, joyful deliverance from misfortunes is granted to people.
Would benefit from prof. streghtening, [not flattered].
