Moscow, December 29, 2021
In September, Inna Lamonova from Moscow wrote a letter to Vatopedi Monastery on Mt. Athos, testifying to a miracle that occurred through the intercessions of the Most Holy Theotokos.
Vatopedi is home to the Holy Belt, or Cincture, of the Theotokos, and many appeal to the monastery for prayerful assistance in difficult circumstances.
Lamonova’s testimony was published by the Orthodoxia News Agency yesterday:
My miracle happened 4 years ago!
I thank God for my beloved daughter (Alexandra). May the Lord protect her!
I couldn’t have children for 8 years.
We tried artificial insemination, but it didn’t work.
Then there was an ectopic pregnancy, and unfortunately I had a fallopian tube removed.
The doctors said I wouldn’t be able to conceive on my own.
But with God’s help it happened!
In August 2016, I wrote a letter to Vatopedi Monastery with a request to pray and send me a ribbon from the Holy Belt.
The package from you arrived in September, and in October I learned that I was pregnant!
Is that not a miracle???
A million thanks!
