ICON OF GREAT MARTYR FEDOR TIRAN AT SVYATO-FEDOROVSKY CATHEDRAL IN BELARUS
STARTS OOZING CHRISM

MOSCOW, December 10, 2002 /from a RIA Novosti correspondent/ -- 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.

And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.

When it comes to icons, I prefer "myrrh-streaming" rather than "myrrh-gushing."  I have yet to see a wonderworking, myrrh-streaming icon "gush!"   ;)

Are there any pictures of this icon bearing myrrh on the internet?

I don't know about this icon on the "Net," nor even if the wonderworking, myrrh-streaming icon I personally was blessed to venerate is depicted on the "Net," but I can assure you from personal experience, that such icons do exist!  

I was so caught up in the opportunity to venerate a myrrh-streaming icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker when it was brought to a local church for an Akathist to St. Nicholas Service one evening that I also traveled out of state to venerate it at another church the following evening!  The aura of holiness surrounding the icon was unmistakable.  The myrrh, with a fragrance like roses, if one went up close to the wonderworking icon, could be seen streaming slowly but steadily from the forehead of the Saint, down his face and vestments, to the bottom of the icon, where it was caught by balls of cotton.  After being anointed with this fragrant myrrh by one of the priests present, one was given a ball of the cotton soaked with the myrrh together with a paper copy of the wonderworking icon in an envelope to take home and place in one's icon corner.  The fragrance from the myrrh remained for several months, and I distributed other paper icons and myrrh-soaked balls of cotton to some sick people unable to come to the church--their myrrh-soaked cotton balls also retained the fragrance of roses for a very long time, and they could anoint themselves for several months.

There are currently two Icons of Christ that are bleeding. One is in a smal village outside of Moscow.  The other occurred in the Church of the Holy Sepulchere on Good Friday 2001 during the Orthodox services -

Fascinating, Raouf.  I'm somewhat amused--and I know I shouldn't be--by the proclamation of these two icons with the miracle of oil as an "official miracle" by H.H. Pope Shenouda.  I just never thought of miracles as being "official," I guess.  ;D  More to the point, when miracles are recognized by the officialdom in the RC and EO Churches, they are usually referred to as being "authenticated."  I suppose this means that they are not merely a deceptive show by demons, who also make their own "miracles" to deceive the Faithful.
