The Stone of Unction in the Holy Sepulchre Church, where the body of Jesus was prepared for burial in the tomb. Here, the body was anointed with myrrh and spices and wrapped in a shroud.
The stone emits oil and a precious fragrance. Visitors who place their religious items on this stone, often find that the fragrance remains for a long time afterwards.
Have no anxiety. Sometimes what's worse than being sick is being afraid of getting sick. Leave it to God. Whatever God gives you is best for you. God never gives you a Cross without first weighing and measuring it very carefully to make sure that the Cross will result in your spiritual growth.

Slightly irreverent orthodox Catholic in search of contemplatives, hesychasts, iconographers, and other revolutionaries and interesting social activists. Still figuring out how Mastodon works.😊
