"Kykkou, Kykkou, Kykkos' hill
A monastery the site shall fill
A golden lady shall enter in
And never shall come out again"

Long ago on the island of Cyprus, a cuckoo sang this prophetic song that started a series of mysterious adventures.  A hermit had a vision, a proud and selfish governor was stricken with paralysis, and a princess lay dying.

All these events, including the miraculous healings of the governor and the princess, were part of a plan - God's plan - to bring the very first icon of the Mother of God, painted by the Evangelist Luke himself, from the Emperor's palace in Constantinople to a new home on the island of Cyprus.
