The Holy Hand of St. Mary Magdalene to visit mainlaind Greece

St. Mary Magdalene, the Myrrhbearer (Source)
The holy incorrupt left hand of St. Mary Magdalene the Myrrhbearer will be brought from the Monastery of Simonopetra on Mount Athos to the Athonite dependency, the Church of the Ascension in Vyrona, Attica, from October 23rd to October 26th. Preceding this, the holy relic will have been brought to Trikala to the Holy Church of St. Athanasios Mparas, from October 18th to October 22nd. This is especially pertinent for any women, children, or others who would be unable to visit the Holy Mountain to venerate this great spiritual treasure. For those who do not know, the hand of St. Mary Magdalene is incorrupt to this day, is often wondrously warm as if she were still alive when venerated, and works many miracles. Her presence in the Monastery of Simonopetra is so palpable, that she is considered one of the co-founders and protectors of the Monastery. For any who are in Greece, and able to go venerate, please take advantage of this opportunity!

Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
