An Icon Commissioned by St. Nektarios That He Kept in his Bedroom

In the bedroom of St. Nektarios, which is still preserved at Holy Trinity Monastery in Aegina, there is a large icon of the Panagia. This icon was commissioned by St. Nektarios from an iconographer among the Danielites of Mount Athos. It is an imitation icon of the Panagia from a church in his birthplace of Selybria to which he was spiritually tied from a young age.
