37. The doctor did not believe us
In June 1997 I was in a difficult psychological mood, because of a serious family problem. (My wife could not have a child)
We appealed to science and after 18 months of trouble we were told by our doctor that we must proceed with artificial means if we were going to have a child.
Our spiritual father has always been telling us not to lose hope and have our faith in God and our Lady. As a result, I have decided to visit the Holy Mountain.
The monk gave me the blessed ribbon and told me that by praying and by touching the ribbon on my wife’s belly while she was asleep, our Lady would help us.
I returned home full of happiness and hope for our Lady’s assistance.
After fifteen days my wife happily that the miracle had happened. Our happiness was impossible to be discribed and our gratitute to our Lady great.
After nine months we have managed to hold in our arms a healthy baby girl and after another 19 months we also had a boy.
With your blessing,
38. Despite our efforts we could not have a child
We have been married for two years and despite our efforts we could not have a child. Thirty days ago my wife had a dream in which she was kissing the Holy Belt of our Lady. In the morning, she put on the ribbon which I had brought from Vatopedi and told me that something good was bound to happen soon. On the same day, she had a pregnancy test made unexpectedly and she found out she was pregnant.
She is now two months pregnant and I have come to the monastery to kiss the Holy Belt and thank our Lady and pray that the pregnancy goes well and that we will be healthy to hold a good baby in our hands.
With my deepest respects,
39. All is going well

Some time ago a friend of mine, when he saw that we couldn’t have a baby, he brought over from Vatopedi the blessed ribbon of the Holy Belt of our Lady. As soon as my wife put it one her, she became pregnant. Today she is on her fourth month and everything is going well. Something similar happened to another friend and today he has a healthy daughter.
I would like to express my warmest thanks and to ask you to send me another blessed ribbon to give to a pious,friendly couple.
In Christ’s love,
