Several miraculous healings have been reported in Cyprus through the presence of the Holy Belt of the Most Holy Theotokos this month.

The sacred relic, which is cared for by Vatopedi Monastery on Mt. Athos, has been venerated by hundreds of thousands of Cypriot faithful in the Metropolises of Constantia and Famagusta, Limassol, and Paphos. OrthoChristian reported earlier this week that 100,000 venerated the relic in Limassol, and according to the Orthodoxia News Agency, 200,000 have venerated it overall thus far.

The visit of the Holy Belt has been extended by three days until March 7 due to the overwhelming turnout of the faithful.

Archimandrite Augustinos Kharas spoke with the Top News podcast yesterday, where he shared a few of the miracles that have been occurred, reports the Orthodoxia News Agency.

The blessing of the Panagia was felt so strongly in the Metropolis of Constantia, said Fr. Augustinos, that after her Belt left, many people came and confessed for the first time in their lives.

The report continues:

With patience, people waited in lines to worship, and he emphasized that we learn from those who suffer and place their hopes in the Panagia. “We experienced instances of miracles at the same time,” he stated, referring to the case of an infant with respiratory problems, which, after being blessed, was discharged the next day. He also mentioned a young woman who came to be blessed one day before a scheduled surgery, and the next day she reported that what had been noted in the pre-surgical examinations was not found during the surgery. “Our only hope is God, our Panagia,” he said.

“Miracles happen because we believe,” he stressed.
