Intercession of the Theotokos
The Protection of the Theotokos or the Intercession of the Theotokos has a complex meaning.
First of all, it refers to a cloak or shroud, but it also means protection or intercession.
During the 10th century at the Blachernae church in Constantinople where her robe, veil, and part of her belt were kept, Mary appeared to St Andrew, fool for Christ. She was seen to spread her veil over all those present.
