Miraculous Weeping Icon

It was April 22, 1994, the eve of both St. George's feast and Lazarus Saturday. The traditional Lenten chanting echoed in the background as Fr. Nicholas Dahdal, pastor of St. George Church, was preparing for a Friday evening service. Visiting priest Fr. Douglas Wyper of All Saints Church, and a few parishioners were on hand early that evening. Fr. Wyper noticed a small stream of fluid on the icon of the blessed Virgin and Mother of God. By midnight on Friday, and right before the eyes of hundreds who had arrived to witness this phenomenon, there were now four streams that extended to the bottom of the icon. Thus began the manifestation of God's might, later proclaimed a miracle by His Eminence Metropolitan PHILIP.

This icon is on the iconostas at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church, 1220 South 60th Court, Cicero, IL 60804. Visiting hours are weekdays, 10am to 5pm. Call the church office for more information at 708/656-2927.
