Wednesday 5/12

While Myrna was singing a hymn on the unity of the Church, oil exuded from her hands in the St. George church in Midane, a Greek Catholic parish of Damascus, in the presence of a big crowd, on the occasion of reciting a prayer for the Immaculate Conception. That same day, oil exuded from Myrna’s hands a second time at 12:38, in the presence of the Nuncio’s Secretary in Damascus, Mgr. Serapion Bambonanire. The latter had come to Soufanieh to bring a greeting card from the previous nuncio, Mgr. Nicola Rotunno, to Myrna and Nicolas. In that card, he was requesting a prayer for his intention, because he was about to take a very important decision.
