Miracle “God’s Mother” in Arbanassi
Young and old came to Arbansi to pray before the miraculous icon “of God’s Mother”, which is stored in the monastery “St. Assumption. ”
The icon is studded with silver. Legend has it that after the fall of Tsarevets by the Turks, the nuns left the monastery. Before you leave, they dug into the earth icon.
One hundred years later it was discovered by a pastirche. While led the flock to pasture, heard the boy crying from beneath the ground. Quick stooped and began to dig. So find the icon. They called it “Weeping Icon.”
It is believed that the icon “of God’s Mother” has healing powers. Incurable – recover, and childless women – pregnant.
Many legends have the miracles that icon does. People believe in the power of the icon and say that most miracles happen in the day of the monastery patron saint’s day – 15 August Virgin Mary.
There are testimonies of people who in 2003 saw how the two hands of Mary overlaid sudden glow. For those who have seen this unusual phenomenon, a miracle happened.
Others have noticed over the altar lies a spooky cloud. People tell how the boy is in coma, regained consciousness after prayer.
