   Saint Theodora

   

 

Saint Theodora is one of the living miracles in Greece. (Vasta of Megalopolis)

Saint Theodora

In the green-clad gully, near Vasta village, there certainly has been a miracle.
 Whether it is created by God or nature we are unable to tell. On the roof of the small church of Saint Theodora seventeen bigger and smaller trees (holm-oaks, maples and other) have grown in an impressive way embracing and supporting the temple. Their roots are invisible both on the outside and in the inside of the church. Perhaps they run through the stone-built walls and constitute a miracle of nature, perhaps, a devine hand has woven and maintained their clustering.

Tradition goes that there was the catholicon of a monastery hear and Saint Theodora who had been born in the area of Ancient Melpia was buried there. In Byzantine years the poverty of her family and the lack of a boy who would be recruited led her to join the army presenting her self like a man-soldier. When she was accused and convicted unfairly for some scandal, she asked to pray and her prayer was: «Lord, make trees grow on my grave which will bear witness of your protection and let my blood be the water to water them».

There is no written evidence about the time when the one-aisle basilica of Saint Theodora was built, it was probably a building of the 12th century. Traces of hagiographies are preserved in the interior, which prove that it had been decorated. Below the foundation there are springs of drinkable water which is considered by the faithfull to be holy water.

From Petros Sarantakis


 

This little church was build somewhere between the 11th and the 12th century.
This church has 17 trees on the roof, each tree weight over a ton.
The ground isn't solid enough for those trees to be placed.
Another unexplained phenomenon is the underground water which flows from the church and beyond.
But the part I can describe with my own eyes, is that nowhere you'll find a root from the trees inside the church.
Many research has been made, even with X rays to find wherever the roots are inside the walls of the church, but its not.
I forgot to mention that the trees height are almost 30 meters!

Now imagine a tiny church not more than 3x2 meters having 17 trees on the roof of each weights 1 ton (or maybe more if you calculate also the weight of the leaves for each season, and weather conditions such wind and stormes), 30 meters height, since 12th century, without any physical explanation or damage.

Thats gotta be a miracle!!

According to the myth, Theodora was a young girl who joined the army disguised as a man, since she had no brothers and her father was too old to join in.
Apparently another young girl fell in love with Theodora (thought she was a man) and told their commander that she was pregnant from Theodora.
Then the commander offer to Theodora two choices:
Marry the young woman, or sacrifice herself.
Obviously Theodora couldn't marry the other girl.
Her faith in God was huge, so before her death, she spoke to the god and said...

My blood a river

My hair the forest"

Agia Theodora - Das Wunder von Vasta

I Eklisia *Agia Theodora*
Die Legende der Heiligen Theodora
Theodora war ein sehr gläubige Griechin die damals als Mann getarnt zum Militär ging (weshalb auch immer?)
Eines Tages verliebte sich ein eine junge Frau in sie, in der Annahme das Theodora ja ein Mann sei.
Da sie Theodora unbedingt heiraten wollte log sie ihren Vater, einen hohen Offizier, an und erzählte ihm das sie von Theodora schwanger sei.
Der Offizier stellte Theodora nun vor die Wahl, entweder sie würde seine Tochter heiraten oder man würde sie töten.
Natürlich konnte Theodora sie nicht heiraten und wurde daher hingerichtet.
Ihr Glauben aber an Gott war so stark das sie bevor sie starb zu ihm sprach und ihre letzten Worte waren:

*Mein Körper soll zu einer Kirche werden*
*Meine Haare zu einem Wald*
*Mein Blut zu einem Fluß*

 Und so entstand diese WUNDERvolle Kapelle.
So hat es mir eine sehr gute griechische Freundin erzählt und ich hoffe das ich es so einigermassen richtig wiedergegeben habe.
Im Internet findet man leider relativ wenig über *Agia Theodora* und in Büchern wird so gut wie gar nichts berichtet.
Ich habe bis jetzt nur eine sehr gute Homepage in englischer und griechischer Sprache über *Agia Theodora* gefunden.
