The story tells that during the approaches of the militant Saracens to Byzantium, its inhabitants gathered in the Church of the Theotokos and prayed fervently, calling for their protection. The worshippers saw the Mother of God passing through the air through the Royal Gates to the altar and prayed to the Lord, weeping bitterly, for almost an hour together with those present. Then she spread her omophorion shining with heavenly light over them – the very Intercession called to protect believers from adversity. The Saracens retreated from the walls of Byzantium and the city was saved.

This miracle formed the basis of the Feast of the Intercession, the image of which was the Icon of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos. The central role here is played by the very cloth of the Mother of God, with which she covers each of us to protect from troubles, misfortunes and loss of faith.

The image of Holy Theotokos has been reverently transferred by jewelers into a sculptural composition – the seal of the Intercession of the Theotokos, who bestows God's grace through extending her veil to overshadow with her protection and love.
