The rumor about the miraculous image spread throughout Russia through pilgrims. His Holiness Patriarch Nikon (then archimandrite of Novospassky) turned to Archimandrite Pachomius of the Iberian Athos Monastery (who had come to Moscow to receive alms for the Athos monasteries) with a request to send a copy of the miraculous Iberian Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos.

The great shrine of the Russian Orthodox Church, the Moscow Iberian Icon, has been glorified by the Lord with many miracles. The Iberian icon (which is now kept on Mount Athos) in the 9th century was kept by a pious widow who lived near the city of Nicaea. Under the emperor Theophilus (829-842), iconoclasts who destroyed the holy icons came to the house of this Christian woman, and one soldier struck the image of the Mother of God with a spear. Immediately, blood flowed from the affected area.
When they left, the woman, together with her son (later a monk of Athos), lowered it into the sea to preserve the holy icon. The icon, standing on the water, sailed to Athos. The monks of Athos, for several days seeing a pillar of fire rising to heaven in the sea, came to the shore and found a holy image standing on the water. After a prayer service for the conferral of the shrine that appeared to the monastery, the pious monk of the Iberian Monastery, Saint Gabriel Gruzin Comm. 25 July, at the command of the Mother of God, who appeared to him in a dream, walked on the water, accepted the holy icon and placed it in the temple.However, the next day the icon was found not in the temple, but over the gates of the monastery. This was repeated several times, until the Blessed Virgin revealed to Saint Gabriel Her will in a dream, saying that she did not want to be kept by the monks, but wanted to be their Guardian. After that, the image was placed over the monastery gates, where it remains to this day. Therefore, the holy icon is called Portaitissa, the Goalkeeper.
