THE CHURCH WHERE MIRACLES COME TRUE

ZLATARI WORSHIP PLACE IN

BUCHAREST

Zlatari Church in Bucharest has a very interesting story. This worship place in Bucharest houses the right hand of Saint Cyprian of Antiochia, Syria. He was a pagan in 300 A.D. and also a wizard. A young man in love with a young faithful woman, Iustina, asked Cyprian to send demons at the girls in order to make her fall in love with him. The demons had no power against her for she was living in a prayer, thus Cyprian of Antiochia became a Christian and died as a martyr in the same time with Iustina in 304 A.D.
