The Convent where the miracle with the snakes occurs every year desecrated in Greece

Cephalonia, September 3, 2013

The famous Convent of Dormition of the Mother of God in Cephalonia has been robbed. The miracle with the snakes happens in it every year on the Patronal feast: in the memory of deliverance of the Convent's sisters from pirates through prayers before the Panagia Fidousa Icon, the Church is filled with venomous snakes which are not dangerous for people on that day.

This church has been robbed and the wonder-working icon desecrated, reports the Bulgarian website Dveri na Pravoslavieto. The unidentified people entered the Church through the window, broke down the glass at the icon, and took stole all the gifts and donations that had been left there by pilgrims.
