The history of this miraculous icon is inextricably linked with the Pochaev Monastery in honor of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos (Ukraine). On the mountain where the Dormition Pochaev Lavra is now located, two monks settled in 1340. Once one of them, after praying, went to the top of the mountain and suddenly saw the Mother of God, standing on a stone, as if enveloped in flames. He called another monk, who was also honored to contemplate the miraculous phenomenon. The third witness of the vision was the shepherd John Bossoy. Seeing an unusual light on the mountain, he climbed it and, together with the monks, began to glorify God and His Most Pure Mother. After the phenomenon disappeared, the imprint of Her right foot remained on the stone where the Mother of God stood. This imprint has survived to this day and is always filled with water, which miraculously exudes the stone. The water in the foot does not become scarce, despite the fact that numerous pilgrims constantly fill their vessels with it to heal from ailments.
