Agios Fanourios: The wonderful church that offers peace to the faithful

The small church located on Rethymnou Chania Street is flooded daily by believers. The vows made there for the children are many. Among them was a child who was between life and death.

After a lot of suffering and pain, Father Christos Papoutsakis, the pastor of the church, said that he was well. The experts could not justify how he did it. It was obvious that the Saint had put his hand.

The church of Agios Fanourios is located in nature and offers peace. It is located behind the trees and is the refuge of the wounded and the desperate. Many times vehicles form queues and the faithful come to the temple for prayer.

At the spot there was a ruined church, with the icon of Agios Fanourios, in front of a carob tree. Pope Nicholas built the first regular church. Each time a bulldozer stepped forward to demolish the chapel, the engine stopped. You see, some people wanted the highway to go through there. Thus, the national church was built, without demolishing the church.

Pope Christos tried for the restoration, with the contribution of the people being great. The people helped financially, while someone also donated his field. Dozens of fanouropites and lighted candles ask for the help of the Saint.

Agios Fanourios: The miracles

Miracles are innumerable and believers have much to say. A cancer patient saw in his dream Agios Fanourios, who asked him to take a copy of the icon of Rhodes to the church. This was the wish of the ephemeral, which was fulfilled, through the Saint, while the man continues to live and work in Chania.

Agios Fanourios responds to what the faithful ask him. Two soldiers were saved from a car accident and every year they come to the church with pies. Another narrates that Agios Fanourios appeared in front of him and helped him with the flat tire to go to his church. Since then he became faithful and visited it every year.

Anyone who visits the church, always sees his life with greater optimism. The small and the big miracles are what help to overcome the difficulties and obstacles of life. They give strength to man and push him to continue.
