Icon of Soldier Beheaded For Not Taking Off His Cross Gives Myrrh in Penza Church

Penza, 17 February 2010, Interfax – An icon of Evgeny Rodionov has started giving myrrh in the St. Luke Church at the Penza regional oncology dispensary. The Russian soldier Rodionov was executed in Chechnya in 1996 as he refused to renounce his Orthodox faith.

“Myrrh came out in two spots, in a palm of his hand and where one wears the cross,” the church Rector Alexy Burtsev told journalists.

According to him, it happened during the All-Night Vigil on February 15. Parishioners, who stood behind praying, felt a strange pleasant aroma.

The priest noted that on February 15, 1996, Penza-born Evgeny Rodionov was captured in Chechnya, imprisoned for a hundred days, and when he refused to renounce his Christian faith, militants beheaded him.
