Fr. Alexii just returned from the Winter Youth Retreat at the Monastery of the Protection of the Mother of God at New Gracanica. While there, the Miracle Working Icon of Iveron (Hawaii) was brought by Father Athanasius from Hawaii. In attendance were 120 high school and college students, as well as counselors and clergy. Several times Fr. Alexii and others saw the oil actually spontaneously flow from the icon. Many lives were changed through the grace of her presence. They brought some of the myrrh back to the monastery that flowed from the icon. Presvetaja Bogorodice, spasi nas!
And...preparing the greenhouse for planting!
