Mary Coustas Prayed For Her Baby at Panagia Tinos in Greece
Mary Coustas posted this beautiful photo of her daughter Jamie on Facebook last week. Isn’t she cute?
After reading her story in New Idea magazine, I discovered that Mary Coustas travelled to Panagia Tinos to pray for a baby. Her prayers were answered. A few months after the baby was born, Mary and her husband George decided to go back to Panagia Tinos to celebrate baby Jamie’s christening.
Panagia Tinos is The Church of Virgin Mary on the Greek Island of Tinos and is also known as Panayia Evangelistria. Inside the Church is one of the most important religious monuments in the whole of Greece – The Miraculous Icon of Virgin Mary.
Many miracles have taken place at Panagia Tinos and I promise to write about them one day in another post. However the miracle that Panagia Tinos is very well known for is answering the prayers of those who pray for children.
The red carpet that layer the stairs are for the worshipers. People get down on their hands and knees and crawl up the mountain to the very top of the Church.
My mother in law visited the Church recently. She brought me back a book and a lot of Holy Oil to rub on my belly.
Do you know anyone who has crawled the steps of Panaia Tinos?
