According 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.
