Faux miracle semble-t-il…

Last week we published a news piece on a story that was circulating, mainly around the Greek-language internet, about a supposed miracle in which Elder Ephraim of St. Anthony’s Monastery in Arizona appeared to prevent a plane crash after the pilot had passed out.

The story originated with The Cyprus Times newspaper, which later retracted the story, stating that it had turned out to be a false story. It seems to have been a fabrication based on a real incident that occurred on October 9, in which the pilot passed out on a flight headed for Cyprus.

We would like to clarify that there was no such incident involving Elder Ephraim, and that there were no incidents with TUS-Airways on flights from Cyprus to Israel on October 9.

En fait c'est toujours risqué de rapporter un miracle car cela dépend du crédit accordé aux sources. La nouvelle n'était peut-être qu'une invention de pieux propagandistes. Mais on peut aussi en douter… il y a peut-être eu miracle mais il est possible que Geronda Ephraïm ait refusé que l'on en parle par humilité ou peut-être la compagnie aérienne a-t-elle craint que l'on discrédite son personnel de vol et qu'elle perde des clients etc.
