Russia - Icon oozing Holy Chrism
« on: January 28, 2003, 07:42:15 AM »
Icon of great martyr Fedor Tiran at Svyato-Fedorovsky Cathedral in
Belarus starts oozing chrism

An icon of the saint great martyr Fedor Tiran in the Orthodox Svyato-
Fedorovsky Cathedral in the town of Pinsk has started flowing with
chrism oil.

The Pinsk diocesan administration said that the great martyr Fedor
is considered the heavenly patron of Pinsk.

About 18 months ago a recently painted icon of the saint Fedor Tiran
was brought to the Svyato-Fedorovsky Cathedral of the town from a
workshop of the Russian Orthodox church in the village of Sofrino.
The image was put up in a room used to bake altar-bread.

When the icon began oozing the fragrant chrism, the icon was taken
to the diocesan administration and then at a ceremony brought back
to the Svyato-Fedorovsky Cathedral.

The icon of the saint great martyr Fedor Tiran continues to exude
chrism, and the news is attracting ever more believers to the
cathedral.

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.
