Icon of Holy Virgin in Kosovo weeps

8/12/12

Belgrade: An icon of the Holy Virgin Bogorodica is reported to have wept on the day of St John Chrysostom on the 26th November. The icon is part of the iconostasis at the Budisavci Monastery which is around 10 miles east of Peč in the Serbian Province of Kosovo and Metohija.

One believer reported that the incident happened during a reading by Abbot Aleksej.

The Serbian Orthodox monastery dates from the 14th century but its origins are obscure. In 1999, Hieromonk Stefan Purić was abducted by the KLA and is now presumed dead.
