Ikona_myrotochyt.jpgIn the Maniavskyi Monastery in western Ukraine, which is called the "Ukrainian Athos," an Icon of the Mother of God began to shed the holy ointment, reported TSN.

The monks are anxious because the last time the icon shed the holy ointment four years ago, exactly before the great flood which affected the whole of western Ukraine. They have no idea what it can mean now. But they are convinced that the Virgin Mary cautions people about something.

It is as if the icon is crying, as the ointment trickles down the right eye. According to the monks, the “trickle” is getting longer with each day. They have no doubt that it is a wonder. “There is no humidity, but cold and frost, everything is frozen and it sheds the holy ointment,” said Metropolitan Ioasaf of Ivano-Frankivsk and Halych of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyivan Patriarchate.

The Wonder-working Icon “Hegumenness of Maniavskyi Monastery” is one of the main local shrines. It is a copy of the original which disappeared when the monastery was closed down. The original was painted in the 17th century after the Holy Virgin appeared to the Superior during an epidemic and told him to repent. After earnest prayers of the monks the epidemic subsided.

      То вже волітик, а не єпископ, якщо він дає останні попередження владі. Краще б він молитвами зайнявся би.

      Створена рівноцінна єпархія чи знову екзархат?

      This is an excellent analysis of the circumstances surrounding the meeting. The meeting goes a long way to explain Pope Francis's unfortunate statements on the nature of the war in Ukraine. One does

      Плохо жить на свете октябренку Пете : бьет его по роже пионер Сережа. Валили бы с Украины, не имели б синяков.
