The Skull of a Romanian New Martyr Gushes Myrrh

On 22 October 2013 the skull of a new martyr of the communist prisons began to flow with myrrh. This skull was found among other bones and skulls in the mass graves of the prison Aiud in Romania.

This took place in the city of Targoviste during the Divine Liturgy in the Church of Saint George.

The previous evening pilgrims were listening to a speech dedicated to the Holy New Martyrs of the communist prisons. That night and before the Divine Liturgy - as eye-witnesses have testified - it was completely dry. Within six hours at least half a liter of myrrh had gathered.

This is considered another sign for the Patriarchate of Romania to canonize the New Martyrs of Romania.
