Theotokos, Quick to Hear-The original 10th century icon of the Mother of God, ?Quick Hearer? is found in the monastery of Docheiriou on Mt. Athos. It is kept in a niche on a side wall of what used to be an entrance to the monastery?s refectory. Once, as the monk in charge of the refectory, Fr. Nilus, was passing, the smoke from his lighted torch left a soot mark on the holy image. He heard a voice: ?In the future, do not pass by so closely that the smoke blackens my image.?
