'''Panagia Axion Esti'''(Greek: Άξιον εστίν, Slavonic: Достóйно éсть, Dostóino yesť), or It is Truly Meet.
Since that time the icon has been considered the protector of the Holy Mountain and its holiest object.
 
The Icon is commemorated by the Church on [[June 11]] and [[July 13]]. The Appearance of the Archangel Gabriel to a Monk on Mt. Athos, and the Revelation of the Hymn, "It Is Truly Meet..." is commemorated by the Church on [[June 11]]
==Hymn==
Hymn to the Theotokos from the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom
 
:It is truly meet and right to bless you, O Theotokos,
:Ever blessed and all most pure mother of our God.
:More honourable than the Cherubim,
:And beyond compare more glorious than the Seraphim,
:Who without corruption gave birth to God the Word,
:True Theotokos: we magnify you.
