The Seraphimo-Diveyevo “Tenderness” (Умиленіе/Umilenie) Icon of the Mother of God belonged to the Monk Saint Seraphim of Sarov and was his cell icon. With the oil from the lampada which burned before this holy icon, the Monk anointed the sick, who received healing after the anointing. The ascetic called the icon “Умиленіе” (Tenderness) – “Joy of All Joys” and in front of it he died at prayer on 2 January 1833. After the death of the Holy Monk Saint Seraphim of Sarov, the monastery abbot Father Niphont gave the holy icon “Joy of All Joys” to the sisters of the Diveyevo-Seraphimovsky monastery.
