Greece, Sunday 3 April 2011 - At 9:30 pm, in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Kalymnos, the face of Christ crowned with thorns appeared in the icon of the Virgn Mary on the iconostasis.
Metropolitan (i.e. equivalent to an archbishop in western Christianity) Paisios of Leros and Kalymnos was immediately notified of the event. He then visited the sacred temple to see for himself. He told the people that God sends these signs in order to draw His people closer to Him.
Thousands of clergy and faithful have come to the church to see this miracle in the middle of Great Lent (Eastern Orthodox). It was originally seen by the women who were in church, chanting the lamentations to the Virgin Mary. When the image appeared the oil candle above the icon began to move, though the others stood still.
