Light from the East - Miracles of Our Lady of Soufanieh
Light from the East -
Miracles of Our Lady of Soufanieh

by Fr. Robert J. Fox

Fr Fox did first-hand research in the Community of Soufanieh, Damascus, Syria near the site where the Apostle St. Paul was converted and baptized. Father Elias Zahlaoui, associated with the Soufanieh miracles and mLight from the East - Miracles of Our Lady of Soufaniehessages from the beginning, sees this as one of the most complete books on Soufanieh, sensitive to all the peoples and Christians of the East.

ight from the East" -- is a 256 page book with multiple colored photos throughout the chapters to illustrate what is happening at Soufanieh -- in the Christian sector of Damascus -- and extending itself throughout the world. It is a "Rosary of marvels" which include exsudations of oil, apparitions, ecstasies, messages, visions, stigmata, bodily and spiritual cures.    

This book is a "new voice" that presents the deeper message of Soufanieh for the universal Church which is called to unity, especially the call for Orthodox and Catholics to become one as they were for the first 1000 years of Christianity. The Author explores not only unity for all Christians but love and unity for each family. Soufanieh is a call for Christian Unity and for love and unity in millions of families which will lead to Christian Unity.

Father Fox went to Damascus and grasped the reality that Soufanieh is to the East what Fatima is to the West. Those of the Soufanieh Community reviewed this book before going to print and were amazed and thrilled that finallly the truth and love for unity between East and West as called for by heaven will be made known to millions more by a priest from the West who accepted those of the East with love. The book is also a loving call for Muslim-Christian dialogue. Finally a sensitivity to the East is shown in presenting the Mother of the East as the Mother of us all who wants her children one in her Son Jesus Christ.

A must to understand the Christian Unity Movement and the Church of the East.

For the first time in 2000 years - Our Blessed Mother has appeared in the East - accompanied by messages from Jesus and an Icon of Soufanieh which exudes olive oil. Myrna Nazzour also gets the stigmata. These miracles take place in the heart and home of family life.

The messages are for Christian unity, plus love and unity in the family. Also contains history of Russia's Miraculous "Kazan" Icon which Pope John Paul II returned to Russia shortly before his death.

Fr. Fox interviewed Orthodox and Catholic patriarchs and bishops, priests and lay people in Damascus for this 256-page book.   ( more articles)

A “New Voice” from Damascus

       In the modest district of Soufanieh in Damascus Syria, near the heart of the place where St. Paul was struck down by a blinding light from heaven, and there converted and baptized, today in our own times, new light is shining.

      In this book, “Light from the East,” author, Father Robert J. Fox tells of marvels: exudations of oil, apparitions, ecstasies, messages, visions, stigmata, bodily and spiritual cures, with doors of a family
open to all.

      A light from heaven is shining again - calling all peoples of the world to unite as one in Jesus Christ. The author relates the call of heaven for unity, love, holiness in our families as a prerequisite for Christian Unity. Light from the East has been shining in recent years ever more brightly at Damascus, its Soufanieh Community at the Virgin’s House. There is a great need for both understanding and appreciation between the East and the West, between Orthodox and Catholic Christians.

A testimonial to this book from the East
        “Your testimony about Soufanieh bears great significance. It appears at a crucial time in history. Mary, the Virgin, is the Mother from the East, whom God chose, excluding all other women, in order
to open locked doors in both the East and the West so as to form
one human family…

         “One of the most amiable aspects of this [book] is your discourse about the Mother Icon of Our Lady of Soufanieh, that is, the Icon of Our Lady of Kazan upon which the Soufanieh Icon is based. What you have written has great dimensions, at the Church level, the ecumenical level and the level of faith in general.”

      “I do beseech Our Lord Jesus, with the mediation of Our Virgin Mother, to make this testimony of your book a new voice to awaken those who got drowned in the delusion of this world. This book reflects the sensitivity needed now.”
