Myrrh-streaming Icon of St. Anna, Mother of the Virgin Mary
Myrrh-streaming Icon of St. Anna, Mother of the Virgin Mary

In 2004, while pastor of a Russian Orthodox Church in Philadelphia, Archimandrite Athanasy (Mastalski) noticed that an Icon of St. Anna he had brought to Philadelphia from the Mount of Olives Convent in Jerusalem was streaming myrrh, a fragrant, slightly oily liquid which initially looked like tear drops, as if St. Anna was crying.

In the Fall of 2012, Archimandrite Athanasy moved to St. Tikhon’s Monastery and brought the Icon with him. It has a wonderful heavenly fragrance but is not currently weeping.

Assistance and healing are still wrought by the miraculous Icon of St. Anna and she continues to work wonders for those who approach with faith.
