Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!

Testimony of a Miracle of the Panagia Prousiotissa During the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918


Retired teacher Lambros Moutsos, who once served in the village of Demi of Agrinio, narrates for us the following miracle from October 25, 1918 (one of many such testimonies):

"In 1918 my wife Spyridoula had contracted a severe form of the flu. My friends who are doctors, Selimas and Sakkas, had assured me that my wife was in the last moments of her life. My wife's brother Nikos Panouklias, from Messolonghi, had arrived at my house that morning to see his sister for the last time. Everyone in my house was discussing the funeral. After a few hours, the sacred procession of the Holy Icon of Panagia Prousiotissa passed outside my house. My nearly-departed wife begged us to take her to the window, which we did. As soon as the sick woman saw the Icon and prayed, she fell asleep, but after an hour we noticed in amazement that the wreck of a human began to move, to come to life and after a few days to become completely well. My wife is still alive and in excellent health, thanks to the miracle of Panagia Prousiotissa."
