    "Celebration" icon
    In the central part of the icon is the entrance to the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows and to the Virgin Mary. At the center of the icon is the three-year-old Virgin Mary, who was brought to the temple by her parents - Joachim and Anna. For a long time they were childless and made a wish: if the Lord gives them parental happiness, then they will consecrate the Child to God. It was a great sacrifice to give up her long awaited only child. The icon shows the fulfillment of a promise: Joachim and Anna bring little Mary to the temple, where the priest of Jerusalem meets the family. According to the tradition of the Church, he was the righteous Zechariah, the future father of John the Baptist, therefore, on the icon, his head is surrounded by a halo. Behind the priest are the Doors of the Saints (a special place in the temple in Jerusalem).
    In the upper part is the icon of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
    In the lower part of the icon "Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary"
    In the circle of the central part of the icon of the saints: Tatiana, Sandra, Anna, Paul, Catherine, Mary Magdalene.
