Archbishop Elias Chacour Unity Within Diversity: Myth or Reality?(Video)
Religious Guest Mirna Nazzour: Myrna experiences visions of both the Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus. In many of her ecstasies she's experienced the stigmata, caught on film. She has suffered Christ's wounds in her hands, feet and side, and the crown of thorns. She's felt the scourging of Our Lord. Her skin exudes 100% pure Olive Oil with healing properties. It has secreted from her face, hands, ears, feet, neck, stomach and eyes during her ecstasies. This phenomena is unexplainable to scientists and psychologists. The later segments of the film contain their testimonials. The Icon of Soufanieh also exudes the same oil, which has healed and blessed a vast multitude. The main message Our Lady of Soufanieh and Our Lord tell us is: Unity of hearts, Unity of Christians and Unity of The Feast of Easter.
