An icon of St. Michael the Archangel located in Rhodes, Greece began weeping this past week.
The Metropolitan was called to investigate, and on his investigation, he had the icon removed from its place where it was hung in order to check whether there was a device or moisture was getting into the icon. Upon investigation, the Metropolitan suggested that perhaps could be from moisture in church. He ordered that the icon be moved to the Church of the Dormition (seems that the Dormition is almost always involved with miraculous icons in one way or another).
Even though the video is in Greek, there are several things to notice, including that the bishop is videoed. Also noticed that it’s little old ladies first to rush in (it was little old ladies cleaning the church who first noticed the tears – just as it was women disciples who were first to see the Resurrection at the tomb).
The procession is accompanied by people from all over. I am also tickled by the woman with the basil sprigs.
At its new location in the Dormition cathedral, the icon still weeping.
Pay attention to this developing story!
What do you think St. Michael and Our Lady are trying to tell us?
