Still Grace-y After All These Years

Dangerous Danny Garland alerts us to recent miracles involving the relics of St. John Chrysostom, which are currently in Nicosia, Cyprus. He leads us to a news report.

Two miraculous cures have been reported in Cyprus as a result of contact with the skull of St. John Chrysostom, according to the Associated Press.

Father Paraskevas Agathonos claimed the visiting relic, which normally resides in a monastery in northern Greece, had healed a partially paralyzed teenager and a woman with a broken leg.

“The pain left, she got rid of the crutches and took off the cast,” he said of a 42-year-old woman who allegedly recovered after visiting the relic Saturday.

The other cure is said to have involved 16-year old Panayiotis Panayiotou, who had been paralyzed in his right arm and the right side of his face following a brain hemorrhage. He reportedly regained full mobility after venerating the skull.
Panayiotou told private TV station Sigma that “the numbness was gone…yes, it was a miracle.”

Some things never change (see 2 Kings 13:21; Acts 19:12).

And, Danny, we’re all watching the blog for baby news.
