<!'''Panagia Pantanassa''' (Most---== History Holy Queen of All) is a miraculous [[icon]] of the Virgin Mary from the holy and great Monastery of [[Vatopedi Monastery (Athos)|Vatopedi]], [[Mount Athos]], Greece. The icon depicts the Icon ==--->Theotokos enthroned and holding her [[Jesus Christ|son]].

The first record of the icon's miraculous powers is from the witness of Elder Joseph. One day a young man from Cyprus went to visit and entered into the church. At that point, Mount Athosthe elder witnessed a glowing light radiating from the face of the Theotokos and an invisible power pushed the young man down to the ground. When the young man had recovered from his fall, he began to repent and weep and confessed that he did not believe and was a participant in the black arts. He changed his life and became an Orthodox Christian.
<!--- I am not sure about if its the original ... thoughThis icon is also known for working many [[miracle]]s, I am pretty certain ..especially healing people with cancer. since the version at the Vatopaidi monastery has a vast record There are many recent records of major miracles recorded against it and they people who have issued been healed from cancer after participating in the official copy of [[Paraklesis|Supplicatory Canon]] to the paraklisi for this icon. Although, I have visited Pantanassa at the monastery in Mystras and the icon they have their is very old as well ... Vasiliki (Ixthis888) --->
