Icon of Great Martyr and Healer Panteleimon begins to stream myrrh in women’s monastery in Buryatia

Baturino Village, August 19, 2016


In Sretensky Convent an icon of the holy Great Martyr and Healer Panteleimon with a particle of his relics is streaming myrrh. The miracle appeared after the icon “visited” the house church of a home for invalids in the city of Ulan-Ude in mid-July by the blessing of Igumena Niki, abbess of Sretensky Monastery, reports the site Russia-Buryatia.

Oily drops of liquid appeared on the icon already two years ago.

When the icon returned to the monastery from the invalid home myrrh was already trickling from the chest and even from the instrument in the hands of the Great Martyr Panteleimon. Oil covered the entire image and gathered at the bottom of the icon.

Olga, a nun of the Sretensky Convent in the village of Baturino: “Probably many of you know that during his life he was a doctor, and therefore people turn to him with requests for the healing of their bodily ailments.”

The holy physician healed with medicine and prayer. Those suffering from all around, seeing his selfless and amazing healing art, went to St. Panteleimon for help. Other doctors became jealous, one of them reporting him as a Christian. The saint was cast into prison, but he championed his faith until the end and the emperor called for the killing of St. Panteleimon.

Nun Olga: “Even unbelievers come to pray. There’s a piece of his relics in this icon. Many churches and prayer chapels in various medical institutions are consecrated in honor of the holy Great Martyr and Healer Panteleimon. Many revere the holy physician, turning to him for help. Now pilgrims come especially to the Sretensky Monastery to pray at the icon of the holy Great Martyr and to ask for healing and consolation for themselves and their loved ones.”

In order not to trigger an unhealthy excitement around the miracle the igumena and sisters of the monastery tried not to publicize it. But, as per the Gospel, a city standing atop a hill cannot be hid, and the fact of this miracle was impossible to hide. The icon is currently kept in the altar of the lower chapel, stated Metropolitan Savvaty.
