(Google would translate the narration by Fr. Michael Andrei Aldea, but some words are not so well revealed)
Here you are a shorter translation with the gist of the event story.
Elder Father Sofian Boghiu has reposed in 1998 September 14, on the day of the feast of The Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving Cross. One year later, Fr Michael Andrei Aldea commissioned an icon with the portrait of Father Sofian. In 1999 on the same day ,September 14, early in the morning, he sanctified the icon and he kept it hidden inside the Sanctuary, during the Divine Liturgy. The service was felt by Fr Michael very peaceful and flowing gracefully with ease, despite being usually a difficult job for him as a single priest in that small church . At the end of the service during the final individual blessings, a lady came to him weeping and pretty sad. He asked her about her emotional state and she said that she fear not to have some sort of a mental illness , because, although she knew that Father Sofian has passed away ,(at that time she went to his funeral together with Father Michael}, but now she saw him during that Divine Liturgy serving together with Fr. Michael. Few moments later, another lady came to Father Michael for the same usual blessing. Then, very impressed she mentioned that she was very happy during the service because she saw Father Sofian participating at the Divine Liturgy, and gladly she realised that he was not dead as someone had told her, before, about his passing . So she believed that Elder Father Sofian had to be very much alive.
Here, we hope that his prayer will be for all of us a great support for our lives.
May Right Reverend Father Sofian Boghiu be in our life and the life of Homs – Syria and Dair Al Harf – Lebanon as our Patron Saint.
