CLEVELAND, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Eastern Orthodox followers are hailing as a miracle the appearance of dozens of crosses on drapes hanging in the St. Mary Egypt Orthodox Monastery in Cleveland.

WEWS-TV Cleveland reported that the event has prompted many to help the hungry and homeless through the monastery, which is run solely by volunteers and founder Mother Theoninfee.

The monastery has provided aid, including shelter, food and a place to pray, to more than 40,000 since Theoninfee founded it in 1992. It has distributed 750,000 pounds of food to the homeless and needy in northeastern Ohio.

Volunteers said the crosses are a testament to the blessed nature of the monastery.
