to one legend, the icon received its name by a miracle of the Holy Virgin. The
Mother of God 'appeared' to two blind people and taking them by the hand, she
guided them to the famous monastery and sanctuary of the Hodegetria where she
restored their vision. Built by Michael III (842-867), this sanctuary was
called the Church of the Guides because the army chiefs used to
pray before this icon before they would leave for their campaigns. Since that
time, the blind and all who suffer eye disorders would visit this church to
wash their eyes so that they could be healed. This is one of the legends that
has given this icon of the Mother of God the Hodegetria a priveledged place in
not just the Eastern Orthodox church but also the Western world.
