Icon of soldier beheaded for not taking off his cross gives myrrh in Penza church

Penza, February 17, Interfax – Icon of Evgeny Rodinov has started giving myrrh in the St. Lukas Church at the Penza regional oncologic dispenser. Russian soldier Rodionov was executed in Chechnya in 1996 as he refused to renounce Orthodox faith.

“Myrrh came out in two spots, in a palm of his hand and where one wears the cross,” the church Rector Alexy Burtsev told journalists.

According to him, it happened during the All-Night Vigil on February 15. Parishioners, who stood behind praying, felt strange pleasant aroma.

The priest noted that on February 15, 1996, Penza-born Evgeny Rodionov was captured in Chechnya, imprisoned for hundred days and when he refused to renounce Christian faith, militants beheaded him.

Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.
