GREECE: Crucified Jesus icon weeps since Syriza won the elections VIDEO

'Tears': An icon of Christ being crucified at a church said by priests to have been 'crying' since January 25 

The triumph of an anti-austerity party in the Greek elections appears to have upset a higher power. An icon of Jesus Christ being crucified at a church in Asprokambos, Corinth, is said by priests to have been ‘crying’ since January 25 - the day that the left-wing Syriza government won the vote. Crowds have been flocking to see the weeping icon at the church of St Nickolas in the Greek village, which is believed to have a clear, oily, sticky and odourless liquid running down it.

People amazed by the phenomenon have been visiting the church to pray at the shrine - and priests have vowed to get a team of scientists to examine the tears, reported La Repubblica. Dionysios Mantalos, the Metropolitan Bishop of Corinth, said he would inform the Greek Holy Synod of the findings, but cautioned that conclusions should not be made until tests have been carried out.

The crying of the icon, which is around a century old, has been billed by some as the 'Miracle of Syriza' - but Bishop Mantalos called for prayer, adding: ‘In matters of faith we must be very careful.’ Last month Greece’s new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras - who is an atheist - broke with tradition by not being sworn in by the head of Greece’s orthodox church, currently Archbishop Ieronymos II.
