Saint Petka in elms tree [Donji Adrovac]

A strange occurrence in the village of Donji Adrovac near Sokobanja and Niš.

The residents of several villages in Aleksinac region for three days, as the pilgrimage, coming to the Lower Adrovac Brest where the end of the road Žitkovac - The lower figure appeared Ljubeš St. Petka! According to the story the villagers, the tree wept before creating a three-day figure of the saint on the tree. Is it a miracle or an optical Schwartz, prosudiće Irenaeus Bishop of Niš. But when word spread of an unusual event, this place is visited by nearly 2,000 people from Zitkovac, Prcilovica, Nozrine, Moravians, Trnjani Tesic and other Moravian village in the end, the residents of the Lower Adrovca ​​testify.

The unusual character of the saint first saw Milan Pejovic who has a house across the street from wood and which maintains the space beside the road.
- At the place where the figure of the saint appeared cut off the branch four years ago. I noticed another new year that the tree as it moisturizes and creates a figure, but I did not mention anyone. The last three days and feature local people have noticed, raščulo from mouth to mouth so that people constantly come. Sami started to leave that place money - said Pejic.
Priest Slavoljub Petrovic, žitkovački pastor says that you can not tell what it is until Bishop Irenaeus of Nis not a final court.
- Perhaps the warning? Race because it is high time for Serbs to return to the faith, or it could be an omen, maybe nothing. Sveta Petka is always black, but as if in some places on the bark of a tree has a shade of red. It could then be the character of the Holy Virgin. I informed the priest trnjanskog Bogosava Stankovic to invite Bishop Irenaeus of Nis. What it comes we will be able to give the court only when the Bishop a statement - the priest says Petrovic.
The area around the tree is surrounded by a wire that visitors would not have touched the hands and damaged the image of the tree. All come only to wires, no hands are not touching. Camera flashes flashing, skljoca camera on mobile phones. They say character is clearer when shooting. Petar Pejovic story that people constantly come to the Lower Adrovac.
- They come from all surrounding villages 24 hours without a break. Only then will they come when pročuje. They come on foot, by car. At that point it stops and bus stations, although not so passengers get out to see the character in Brest.
Locals tell the owner of the parcel from Aleksinac and that after he saw what was happening agreed that the plot is "whatever happens".

"Do not cut me"
- In the village they say that in this place previously cut two trees, and when the owners wanted to cut wages, and this tree "something" they whispered, "Do not cut me." The story that night, after dark, some light as to the character emerges from the saints - the story of Slobodan Vulic, resident of the neighboring Upper Adrovca.
