The Holy Icon
according to tradition was painted by the hand of St. [[Apostle Luke|Luke the Evangelist]]. Since the year 829, this Holy Icon of the Theotokos has been kept in a church that still stands in the city of Proussa, now the Turkish city of Brusa, which is near present day Istanbul. Many miracles have taken place before this icon in the Church.

Monastery of Panagia Prousiotissa in Troy, North Carolina.
