The Snakes of the Panagia Have Made Their Appearance in Kefallonia (2019)

Just as every year, from the feast of the Transfiguration of Christ till the feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos, or from August 6th to 15th, snakes appear in a wondrous manner in two villages of Kefallonia with chapels dedicated to the Dormition of the Theotokos, in Markopoulo and Arginia, that appear to worship among the pilgrims who flock to these chapels, and venerate of their own accord the icon of the Panagia.

It was reported by kefaloniapress, that one snake of the Panagia made its appearance this year on Monday night, August 5th, the eve of the Transfiguration, in Markopoulo, as is customary. Not long after this two snakes made their appearance at the chapel in Arginia. At their appearance, the bells rang joyfully to announce their arrival. It is not reported if more snakes have made their appearance since then.

Photos or videos have not been published yet.
