Mankind, in addition to the economic crisis faces with the spiritual fall maybe the greatest im the history of civilization. Wars, starvation, natural disasters, poverty, immorality, infanticide and many other sins have alienated us from the Lord that despite our negligence is continually concerned about the universe.

In different ways, God shows that it is always and everywhere present and our Orthodox faith so far has recorded many cases of the appearance of the wonders that the Lord has sent messages of love, comfort and hope.

An unusual event took place in the spiritual purest part of Greece - the Holy Mount of Athos. Namely, in the sky above the monastery in which a monk Timothy serves, immediately after sunrise he captures the appearance of three spiritual beings that were illuminated by a rainbow, although it was a foggy morning.

There are various interpretations of this event for many who believe that it is a visit to the Mother of God who is also the patron of Mount Athos. According to the Athonite tradition, the Blessed Virgin Mary was sailing accompanied by St John the Evangelist from Joppa to Cyprus to visit Lazarus. When the ship was blown off course to then-pagan Athos, it was forced to anchor near the port of Klement, close to the present monastery of Iviron.

The Virgin walked ashore and, overwhelmed by the wonderful and wild natural beauty of the mountain, she blessed it and asked her Son for it to be her garden. A voice was heard saying "Let this place be your inheritance and your garden, a paradise and a haven of salvation for those seeking to be saved".

From that moment the mountain was consecrated as the garden of the Mother of God and was out of bounds to all other women.

This miracle for monks is nothing new, because they say that they are aware that regularly visit Mount Athos and watch over Orthodox prayer books which are kept to diligently serve the Lord.
