On the island of Lipsi in Greece, in the church of St. John the Divine, there is the only icon in the world that depicts the Most-Holy Mother of God holding in hands not the Child of Christ, but the Cross with the Savior crucified on it.

This miraculous icon of the Mother of God is called Panagia tou Harou, which in Greek means literally "The Virgin of Death." Every year, this image on the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin takes place the so-called "miracle with lilies."

In the 1940s, a woman prayed before this icon and was healed. In gratitude she left a simple bouquet of lilies on the icon. These lilies withered, but remained on the icon. A year later, these lilies blossomed again. Since then, this miracle occurs every year on the day of the feast..

Now this icon is also in the church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin on Vasylevsk Island in St. Petersburg.
