Cypriot Greeks and Turks Honor the Apostle Andrew


Today, for the Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle, hundreds of Cypriot Greeks and Turks went to the Monastery of the Apostle Andrew to celebrate the Divine Liturgy with Bishop Christophoros of Karpasia. Turks also were in attendance out of veneration for the Apostle and seeking miraculous cures - something for which this Monastery is well known. One Turk was interviewed saying that he made a vow to the Apostle Andrew to heal his son. The Cypriot Greeks say that Turks come to the Monastery quite often because many miracles are acknowledged and sought by them.
