It seems to me that sane religious people in the 21st century tolerate such “sacred phenomena” as “self-igniting” fire in a lamp, “myrrh-streaming” icons, “holy” water, etc.

       They understand that all these phenomena have a prosaic explanation, not without human touch behind the scenes. But they look at it with a wise smile, as if to say: “Yes, I know who sets fire to a”holy” light .It is clear from where the “tears” flow from the icon .It is clear why the “holy” water does not go bad. But let this “miracle” remain in our lives longer. Sometimes you want to believe in a fairy tale after 10 years, when you no longer believe in Santa Claus.

       Let’s just hope priests will not overdo it in proving the truth of all these “miracles”.
