THE ECSTASIES
Updated on 2004-005-04

 
So far, thirty-seve (37) until April 10th 2004 have been documented, eight (8) of which were outside Damascus, Syria:

- One at the Greek-Catholic archbishopric of Khabab, Syria, 60 km (approx 40 miles) to the south of Damascus in the presence of the Archbishop Boulos Borkhosh (without message).
- One at the Syrian-Orthodox cathedral of Hassaké, Syria, at more than 900 km (approx 500 miles) to the North-east of Damascus (one message)
- Three at Màad in Lebanon, one of which at the church village (two messages).
- Two in Los Angeles, USA. (two messages).
- One in Braasschaatt, Belgium (one message).

In general, during these ecstasies, Myrna sees the Holy Virgin, or Christ.

Usually the ecstasy is preceded by an exudation of oil from the hands, face or neck of Myrna. When she is about to see Christ, oil comes out also through her eyes and burns them before she goes into ecstasy. This stage is followed by the ecstasy itself, that is to say the state of disconnexion with the external world. During this phase Myrna does not see, hear, nor feel. Her body is stiff. She sees Christ in the form of a Person made up of light without distinguishing His face, which is not the case with the Holy Virgin.
 
After having seen Christ, she returns to her normal state, and she takes time to recover her normal sight: her interior light prevents her from seeing anything. She has remained in this state during 72 consecutive hours, from November 26th till the 29th, 1984. Often, one to four physicians would be present during the ecstasies. A number of medical tests have been undertaken mainly on her sight, sensitivity and reflexes: all were negative. Besides the first two ecstasies of Monday October 24th, 1983, which have not been timed, the duration of the other ecstasies has varied between 5 and 75 minutes. Most of these ecstasies have been recorded on videotapes.

These ecstasies were accompanied most of the time with messages summarizing the important Christian realities:

  • TRINITY, CREATION, INCARNATION,
  • DIVINE PATERNITY, MEDIATION OF THE VIRGIN MARY,
  • DESERVING THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN,
  • REPENTANCE TO THE LORD,
  • NECESSITY FOR CONSTANT PRAYER AND FASTING, SANCTITY OF THE MARRIAGE,
  • PRESSING APPEAL FOR THE UNITY OF THE CHURCH,

  • THE ROLE OF LAITY IN THE WORK OF UNITY.
