On Sunday – Pentecost, Trinity Sunday – it’s reported that an icon of the Theotokos, the Birth-Mother of God, began weeping myrrh at St. Paul Greek Orthodox Cathedral on Hempstead, Long Island, NY, after a hiatus of some years.  Read all about it!  It’s one of two icons of the Virgin Mary there with a history of weeping … and one of three associated with that parish.  (The third isn’t at the church.)

They’re serving a special service called a Paraklesis twice a day there until further notice, and taking names to add for persons to pray for by (Orthodox given) name during the services, for health and salvation.

We are not worthy, but God is merciful!
