November 26

A series of extraordinary spiritual phenomena have reportedly been observed at Soufanieh, a suburb of Damascus in Syria, between 1982 and 2004. They began on November 27, 1984 when oil started to flow from a small paper image of the Virgin Mary in the house of the Nazzour family. According to sources, effusions of oil have since been observed on liturgical feast days, either on the aforementioned image, reproductions of that image, or on the hands and face of Mrs. Nazzour (Myrna). This oil has been analysed by six laboratories in Syria and Europe and was found to be 100% pure olive oil.

Other spiritual phenomena observed at Soufanieh:

Myrna has received stigmata on the Holy Thursdays of the years 1984, 1987, 1990 and 2001 (the years in which the date of the celebration of Easter among Catholics and Orthodox coincided). These have been confirmed by a number of doctors who were present.

Spiritual ecstasies undergone by Myrna.

Healings, among others, from cancer and blindness, as well as conversions.

Apparitions of the Virgin Mary have been reported. These were visible only to Myrna.

The Nazzour’s home has become a venue for prayer groups and attracts pilgrims from all over the world.
