Saint John the Russian, after his Blessed Repose, once appeared to a girl and told her: “Come and see my pillow which is full of tears. I am weeping for you the youth. I am especially Praying to God for the youth to support you.” In 1977, the Priest at the Church of Saint John the Russian in Evia opened the Holy Reliquary and saw the pillow on which the Saint was lying was completely clean, but beside his eyes it was wet with a large stain of tears.
In Melbourne, Australia, we are Blessed to have some Holy Relics of Saint John the Russian. At our Church of the Presentation of Our Lord to the Temple, in Coburg, we have a hat and a piece of the Holy Body of Saint John. Also, at our Church of Saint Paraskevi in St Albans, we have a piece of the Vestments on the Holy Relics of Saint John. Every so often, Saint John informs someone in a dream, whenever it is time, to change these Vestments on his Holy Relics.
