Our Lady of Soufanieh Prayer Card
Our Lady of Soufanieh (Damascus, Syria) - Based on message of Our Lady to Mirna (Myrna) Nazzour. On November 22, 1982, three women of different faiths — Orthodox, Catholicism, Islam — stood in prayer around a sickbed in the Soufanieh neighborhood of Damascus. Seeing light, then oil, coming from the Catholic woman’s hands, the Moslem woman urged her to put them on the sick person, who was instantly healed. Five days later, oil began oozing from a small picture of Our Lady of Kazan in Myrna and her husband, Nicholas' home — an icon both Catholics and Orthodox Christians revere, known for miracles and healings. With a year’s break in 1985-86, oil flowed from the image until November 26, 1990..........On December 15, 1982, Myrna saw the Virgin coming from a globe of light in a eucalyptus tree. From then on she repeatedly saw and received messages from both Mary and Jesus, until November 26, 1990, when she reported the Virgin’s farewell: “… you are seeing Me for the last time until the feast is unified.” Consistent with the seer’s personal location in a nexus of faiths, the messages of Soufanieh call for Christian unity, including agreement on the date of Easter, historically different in the western and eastern churches. Often Myrna heard the Virgin repeat the Biblical sayings of Jesus: “Love one another. … Forbear and forgive. … Do not fear, I am with you.” In an early message from Mary, Myrna learned the affirmation, “God saves me, Jesus enlightens me, the Holy Spirit is my life, thus I fear nothing.” We were told also then that the Virgin had promised Myrna that she would only see Her again in the years when Catholics and Orthodox celebrate Easter together; which happens rarely, because of the difference in the liturgical calendars.
