Holy Snakes of the Virgin Mary

The phenomenon of the Holy Snakes of the Virgin Mary has been occurring for centuries during the festivities to the Theotokos between August 5 and August 15 in the village of Markopoulo on the island of Kefalonia, Greece. The small black snakes appear at the church of Panagia of Langouvarda on the site of a monastery, established as a nunnery and dedicated to Our Lady of Langouvarda.

The snakes have a small cross on their head and their tongues are also in the shape of a cross. They are known to belong to the Telescopus fallax species, also known as the European Cat Snake, and they appear in and around the courtyard of the church, on the walls and on the bell tower. The snakes show no fear while the services are held and are harmless during the festivities. As soon as the Liturgy concludes on the 15th of August, they become hostile and aggressive and disappear back into the wilderness of the area. The snakes cannot be found until the following year.

An example of how Christianity has adopted parts of ancient Greek religion.
This is most definitely related to the sacred snakes on the precinct of
Asclepius temple at Epidaurus which were said to have healing powers.
Another example is the snake on the Aegis, the shield of Athena, the virgin

I haven't heard anything about God or Jesus! Satan can appear as an angel
of light & can appear as Mary or new age Jesus. the bible seems it would
say Mary is the queen of heaven. I would be very careful with this stuff.

It is a DEMONIC event. NOTHING spiritual in it. Whoever your roots are -
you are NOT standing on those roots Scismatic EVIL apostate people, as you
are. God abandoned you
