A Miracle of Saint John Chrysostom in Sri Lanka for a Buddhist Child


In November of 2007 the sacred skull of Saint John Chrysostom was brought from Vatopaidi Monastery on Mount Athos to Cyprus on the occasion 1600 years since his repose, and during this time many miracles of the Saint were reported, among which is the following.

A former Buddhist from Sri Lanka who had converted to Orthodox Christianity in Cyprus and was recently baptized, prayed fervently before the sacred skull of Saint John Chrysostom as she venerated him, begging his aid on behalf of her dying nephew in Sri Lanka.

On her return home she received a phone call from Sri Lanka informing her that she had no reason to worry, because the child had overcome the danger. She then realized that this was a miraculous act of the Saint, and informed her family in Sri Lanka. The result was their intense willingness to also seek the truth faith.
