The Archangel Michael delivered a church from destruction and brought forth a holy spring. A band of pagans tried to destroy the church by diverting two rivers towards it, but the Archangel appeared and caused a great earthquake. The earth split open and the rivers flowed into the ground, and Saint Archippus offered a prayer of thanksgiving. After this, the place was renamed Chonae, which means "funnels." The event is commemorated on September 6.

I came to Legacy Icons on a recommendation for incense. I purchased the incense AND the Miracle of Archangel Michael at Chonae (Sinai) icon. The colors and detail is what caught my eye and the workmanship that is put into each piece sealed the deal for me. Because of the quality of that piece, I purchased three other icons shortly thereafter. Stunning artwork that I highly recommend to everyone.
