According to the Serbian site telegraf.rs, His Grace Bishop Nikodim of Dalmatia spoke about the miracle in his homily on Friday, saying: “A few days ago, in the monastery of Krka, the icon of St. Archangel Michael, who stands at the very entrance of the church, was weeping.”
The site also reports that His Holiness Patriarch Irinej was informed about the icon, who said it was a miracle.
