An Icon of Saint John the Forerunner Gushing Myrrh in Chicago

An unexplained phenomenon has been occurring since July 19, 2015 in the community of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Homer Glen, Illinois, where the image of St. John the Forerunner exudes a fragrant liquid. The “National Herald” contacted Fr. Sotirios Dimitriou, who has served as a priest in the community since 1993, and he said that “the icon of St. John the Forerunner exudes some kind of liquid that has a beautiful scent. Father Sotirios also said that “I was a patient at the hospital when the phenomenon started and when I came out of the hospital I was told immediately” and added “when I went to kiss the icon I noticed that indeed there was a certain liquid running, trickles that were fragrant, and I did not know what it was. ”
