Saint John of Damascus  wrote many  important theological  works and hymns that are treasured  by  the Orthodox  and  used in the Liturgical cycle of  the  Church  to this  day.  Amongst other  things,  he wrote the life of Saint  Catherine  of Alexandria. He peacefully slept in the Lord in the year 749. We commemorate this great hymnographer and defender of the Faith on  December 4.  (OC 17). The Miraculous Holy Icon of the Mother of God of Three Hands exists to this day and can be venerated at the Monastery of Hilandar on Holy Mount Athos, Greece. A few exact copies of the Icon are treasured at different parishes and can be venerated around  the  world.
