Talk:The miracle in Syria

This information would seem to be more appropriately mentioned as a brief section in an article on Saydnaya Convent itself, especially because it's of such recent origin. Many miracles have been associated with that convent (which I must admit I don't think is likely called "Panagia" by the locals, who are not Greek speakers). —Fr.

Hi, you are right that it would be appropriate to relocate to article on the monastery. I will look up further information on the monastery and fix at a later time soon ... the monastery is in the Palestine region (its located over the birth home of St. Anna the mother of Panagia) and all churches in Palestine are run by GREEK ORTHODOX and are hence named in Greek but also have palestinian equivalent (look at the icon of the grandmother, its in Greek).

Here's some info on the monastery:
It's located near Damascus (the capital of Syria), which is near Palestine but not Palestinian. It belongs to the Patriarchate of Antioch, while all Palestinian churches are under the Patriarchate of Jerusalem. In any event, among Antiochian Orthodox, it's never called Panagia Saydnaya, but usually simply "Our Lady of Saydnaya" or "Saydnaya Convent" or their Arabic equivalents. —Fr.
