A Paschal Miracle of the Epitaphios in 2011

At the Church of Saint Paraskevi in Lefkadia a miracle occurred with the flowers which adorned the Epitaphios on Good Friday on April 22, 2011. After 37 days, which was three days before the leave-taking of Pascha (on May 29, 2011) and also the Sunday of the Blind Man, the dead and dried up flowers (which symbolize life) which still adorned the Epitaphios (which symbolizes the tomb of Christ) came back to life. When this video was taken (June 12, 2011), which was fifty days after Pascha, new buds were still being produced.
