The Myrrhgushing Icon of St. Ephraim the New in Romania

The icon above can be found at the Holy Monastery of Sihastria Rarau in Romania. It performs many miracles and is myrrhgushing.

It began in 2010 when a priest, Father Onufrie C─âruntu, visited the Monastery of Saint Ephraim in Nea Makri and purchased an icon of St. Ephraim there for 15 euros. Upon returning to Romania, he brought it to his home. On Easter day in 2010 it began to flow with myrrh. Soon after very many miracles began to follow.

The blog of the Monastery can be found here:

A Romanian website dedicated to St. Ephraim's miracles in Romania is here:

Two books have so far been published in Romania with dozens of testimonies of miracles attributed to St. Ephraim of Nea Makri.
