The feast was established in commemoration of when, in 936, St. Andrew, a fool for Christ, and his disciple, Epiphanius, during the All-night Vigil in the temple at Blachernae, saw the Most Holy Mother of God praying for people present in the temple and overshadowing them with Her omophorion. This feast is of Greek origin, but only in Russia did it attain the significance of a great feast, albeit one not included with the twelve great feasts.
