Eyes of our Lord at the Holy Sepulchre

    This certainly got my attention this morning. I would imagine the Priests there surprise to see light emanating as well as the eyes of the Lord OPEN.



    Glory to God!
    I wanted to share something with you. A priest had put this on Facebook and I thought you'd be interested:
    "Regarding the miracle of the crucified Christ opening his eyes in the Holy Sepulcher this week:
    After I received several messages inquiring about what is being circulated on Facebook regarding the miracle of the crucified Christ opening his eyes in the church of the Holy Sepulcher—where Christ was crucified—I would like to clarify the following:

    1- The miraculous event occurred this past Wednesday before the eyes of many priests and visitors, including my friend Archimandrite Malateus Basal whose friend took the pictures , who assured me of what happened in detail, which is that the eyes of the crucified Christ on the icon—which are always closed—remained open throughout the day.
    2- Miracles allowed by God’s Love strengthen our weak faith, but they are not the reason for our faith. Our faith goes deeper than that. We have seen God in the flesh, we have heard Him, we have eaten with Him, and we witnessed His Crucifixion, His Death, His Resurrection and His Ascension to Heaven. The greatest miracle which is far underappreciated occurs in every Divine Liturgy, where bread and wine are transformed to the Body and Blood of Christ. Let us always be mindful of this.
    3- We look at this miracle and all miracles as a sign from God to strengthen our faith and to remember the Divine Love of the One who died on the cross for our sins. May we repent and prepare ourselves for a true Holy Week and Resurrection.

    Praise God for all things.

    Father Theodoros Daoud"

    And this as well, I was shocked to see this but when searching youtube for this topic this came up and I was wondering if anyone who has been there has seen this with their own eyes?

    "assured me of what happened in detail, which is that the eyes of the crucified Christ on the icon—which are always closed—remained open throughout the day."

    Is this for real?

    It is indeed posted to Father Daoud's FB page and is now his banner picture. I have not see this anywhere except where I found it originally and that was Spiritdaily. To be quite honest, I don't know what to think about it. I am tempted however to message Father Daoud on FB and ask him about the illuminati eye above the alter at the church and whether it is true or not.

    When I was a child in school they always gave an image of God the Father as an eye enclosed by a triangle. I think , actually, there are paintings in the Vatican that show the same thing. I will have to check and see.

    In Christianity, the all-seeing eye or “Eye of Providence” or “Eye of God” has been used as a symbol from at least the 16th century as seen in the following painting below which depicts a scene from Luke 24: 13-32 where after his resurrection, Jesus has supper with two disciples.

    16th century Christian painting – dated 1525 by Italian artist Pontormo (student of Da Vinci), called Supper in Emmaus – depicts Luke 24: 13-32

    The eye is inside a triangle, and surrounded by rays of light, with the triangle representing the holy trinity and the whole symbol meaning God’s omnipresence and all-seeing eye watching over creation.

    Some claim that the eye in triangle symbol was added to the painting soon after the Council of Trent 1545- 1563, to conform with its canons and decrees but even if that is so that would still place its use in the 16th century.

    In Alsace, France, the fresco painted above the altar of the Abbey Church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste (1763) shows a large example of the eye-in-pyramid symbol, with the rays of glory breaking through the clouds.

    Another example is on the Aachen cathedral in Germany. It was originally built in the late 8th century under the Emperor Charlemagne and then enlarged in the middle ages with various other changes and updates along the way. It would seem the all-seeing eye symbol was placed on the cathedral in 1766 to mark the renovations done that year.

    Note that these first two examples pre-date the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati (1776) although Freemasonry already existed in England and Europe by this time. Perhaps it was a masonic influence that saw these symbols used on these cathedrals yet it was not until about 1797 that masons are regarded as beginning to use the eye-in-pyramid symbol.

    The eye-in-pyramid symbol also features prominently on the front facade of the Hartegbrugkerk Church in Leiden, the Netherlands, built in 1835-36. The Latin words “Hic Domus Dei est et Porta Coeli” translates to “This is the House of God and the Gateway to Heaven.”

    These are just some Christian examples of many that appear in Europe.

    I think that this is a very neat story, and i hope that it is true, as I shared it with several friends last week.

    But, as frequently seems to happen, the plot has thickened. Apparently the priest that originally posted this story and picture on FB was laicized in July 2016. That doesn't mean that the story is necessarily untrue, but may call into question his honesty and character. He definitely shouldn't be using the title "father" any longer.

    It's hard to know what to believe anymore!

    Thank you guys for the responses especially regarding the eye. This symbol is a lot more prevalent than I was aware of.

    Sounds like the guy who put this story out to begin with is in some deep trouble. Too bad.

    Of course we also have the eye on our dollar bill and everybody attributes that to the Masons but I was always told or at some point I was told that was also the eye of God and my understanding is that the Masons adopted it for that reason as well and it has now been bastardized into meaning all those terrible things that people say it means.

    Sounds about right. Let's take something of God and mock him. Just like the LGBT community taking the rainbow.
