Miraculous Hawaii Iveron Icon to be in Lorain, OH

LORAIN, OH [MW Diocese Communications] Saints Peter and Paul Church here will have the honor of hosting the myrrh-streaming “Hawaii” Iveron Icon of the Mother of God on Wednesday, October 5, 2011.

Miraculous Hawaii Iveron Icon to be in Lorain, OHAt 6:00 p.m., a Service of Supplication will be celebrated, after which the faithful will have the opportunity to venerate the icon and be anointed with the miraculous myrrh. All area clergy and faithful are cordially invited to participate in this opportunity for prayer and intercession in the presence of this wonderworking icon.

The icon is an exact replica of a famous myrrh-streaming Iveron Icon of the Mother of God in Montreal. It is a paper print mounted on wood, manufactured in Russia and purchased in Toronto by a priest who gave it to a Russian Orthodox believer in Honolulu in 2007. In October of that year, the owner, Nectarios, noticed the sweet smell of roses in his study. An investigation caused him to discover that the icon was exuding small drops of myrrh, coming from the Virgin’s eyes and dripping down the panel. He later took it to his parish church where it continued to emit this sweet-smelling substance. It became quite famous in Hawaii, and a large number of visitors from all Christian traditions have come to visit it, sensing the grace of God in its presence. Some days the icon is dry, while on other days it is completely covered in myrrh. Yet it continuously gives off the scent of roses.

In June 2008, the myrrh-streaming “Hawaii” Iveron Icon was officially recognized by His Eminence, Archbishop Kyrill of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, as miraculous and genuine and given the blessing to travel to churches and monasteries.

The icon, which is enshrined in a home chapel in Honolulu, has been credited with numerous healings during the past three years.
