The Biblical miracle recurs on the Jordan during the Epiphany Day

Moscow, January 24, Interfax - Some five thousand pilgrims from various countries became witnesses to a sign that appeared on the holy River of Jordan on the Epiphany Day.

Immediately after Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem performed the rite of the blessing of water, the Jordan boiled up and began to flow back, just as it happened after the baptism of Christ, the Zhizn (Life) daily writes.

Right after silver crosses were thrown into its calm waters after the prayer, the river boiled up. A maelstrom developed and the current flowed back for a several minutes.

An ecstatic cry of five thousand people resounded over the Jewish desert. People refused to believe their own eyes, just as they did two thousand years when the Jordan turned its current after Jesus Christ entered its waters, the newspaper writes.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

When a friend indicated that she wished to be baptised on Epiphany a couple of years ago, I suggested she make arrangements with the Jerusalem Patriarchate so she could be baptised in the Jordon for exactly that reason Grin

It is an awesome miracle, but there are some who are suspicious of miracles which happen on the same feast day every year. I am not one of those people Cheesy
