Miracle? ‘Faces’ Of Jesus And John The Baptist Found ‘Intact’, After Devastating Fire Ripped Through Church 

Miracle? ‘Faces’ Of Jesus And John The Baptist Found ‘Intact’, After Devastating Fire Ripped Through Church 

The blaze gutted the ancient 13th century monastery in rural Serbia, Russia, but holy paintings of Jesus and saints remained largely intact.

A FIRE that raged through a church destroyed everything except holy paintings of Jesus and Christian saints — leading worshippers to hail it as a miracle.

They show the faces of Jesus, Saint John the Baptist and Saint Peter which had once hung pride of place in the 13th century Orthodox church.

Firefighters battled to save the building in the remote village of Kazapun but large parts were completely ruined.

Rescuers were stunned to see the religious icons were still in good condition despite the severity of the blaze.

News quickly spread of the surviving paintings as believers began viewing the rescue as a sign of godly intervention.

One local told the media: “Glory to God and his worshippers.”

Many have been encouraged to help with the clean-up effort following the supposed miracle.

But other locals have given a more plausible explanation for the “miracle”.

One said: “Gold doesn’t burn and most of the icons are made of 24k gold. It has happened before and will happen again.”

It is not yet known what caused the fire, which started in the more modern accommodation wing of the monastery built in 2003.
