Miracle of the Holy relics

On May 24, after a joint prayer service at the Iveron Parish in Manila with the rector of the Church of the Dormition of the Mother of God in Melbourne, Archpriest Mikhail Protopopov (ROCOR), who delivered to the Philippines a “Round-the-World” icon of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos, this icon, accompanied by other shrines, went to Mindanao Island. At the parish of the Resurrection of Christ in General Santos, during the evening service, the relics of St. Andrew the First-Called started to stream myrrh. This is a clear sign of the presence of God’s grace in our Church and His favor for the apostolic work of our missionaries, which began in this house church 8 years ago.

On May 25, after the Divine Liturgy in General Santos and the prayer service, the shrines were brought to the parish of St. Isidore of Rostov in the village of Alabel, where a prayer service was also held to the Most Holy Theotokos, the Holy Cross and 20 saints whose relics were offered to the faithful for worship.
