Why Did She Cry is the captivating and spiritually lifting true story of the weeping Madonna. During the1960 Lenten period, in the home of Pagona Catsounis of Island Park, New York, a divine sign was manifest. While praying before the icon of the Holy Mother St. Mary, she literally froze as she saw a tear welling on the eye of the lithograph print. Mrs. Catsounis immediately called Father George Papadeas, parish priest of St. Paul's Greek Orthodox Church. Faithful of all denominations made the pilgrimage to St. Paul's for a chance to see and venerate the Icon. Over thirty years later, Newsday proclaimed the weeping Madonna at St. Paul's as one of the most memorable events of the past fifty years.
