Discovered by a peasant suffering from alcoholism and the nuns he sought out for help, the icon quickly gained popularity with those struggling to overcome addictions. The icon depicts Mary and Jesus with hands raised in prayer and represents how God's intercession can fill the spirit and provide resilience against the difficult disease of substance abuse.
