Miracle of Holy Theotokos in the Christian town of Saidnaya

Syria, Saidnaya, January 26, 2014

A miracle by the Holy Theotokos was reported at one of the monasteries of Saidnaya. This town is one of the most famous Christian inhabited and pilgrimage places in the war torn Syria. The incident was told by one of the Syrian Christian who visited her homeland recently. The ongoing civil war has destroyed several Christian institutions and displaced thousands of Christian families in Saidnaya.

The Miraculous incident took place last month when a rebel group fired rockets at one of the monasteries. The Nuns inside the monasteries experienced huge sound and vibration as part of the rocket launch. They were sure that the rocket would kill them and also damage the monastery complex. But nothing happened as they expected and the nuns wondered on ‘fate’ of the rocket.

A few days later one of the Military Generals from the Syrian Army visited the monastery to convey Nativity and New Year greetings. During the conversation the Officer asked whether the monastery experienced anything unusual recently. The nuns told about the rocket which was fired by some rebels at the monastery but did not strike them. The officer was amazed to hear the same and he confirmed that even he saw the rocket fired towards the monastery, but he along with some others saw something very strange and unusual. The rocket was about to hit the monastery but suddenly a women dressed in blue vestment appeared in the sky and took the rockets by her hands and threw it away. This was great wonder to all of them. The General wondered who that lady would be, who is dressed in blue with amazing grace allover her. Finally they realized that it was none other than the Holy Theotokos the mother of Christ our Good, Lord and Savior.

And when the fathers came, the Novice saw a wondrous vision, not sleeping but awake. That is, he saw a beautiful woman between two angels, who shined brighter than the rays of the sun. One held a cup full of heavenly bread, and the other a small cloth. And that beautiful woman, who was our Lady, held a golden spoon, and each brother came forward in his turn and the angel wiped their face with the cloth. After they venerated the Panagia, she took the spoon and gave them the heavenly bread.
