What was once an typical 3-bedroom home in a suburbs of western Sydney has now gained a repute as a “miracle house”. Ash and oil trickle from a walls in such a approach that is reportedly “beyond science”. The homeowners, George and Lina Tannous, trust that a allegedly unaccountable phenomena are a pointer from God and that they have also postulated a residence supernatural recovering properties.

According to a pair, their residence has a extraordinary ability to assistance other couples turn pregnant, even in cases where they have perceived medical acknowledgment that pregnancy would be impossible. There is even one instance of a residence reportedly restorative a woman’s cancer.

The puzzling oil initial seemed in 2008, after George and Lina’s 17-year-old son, Mike, was killed in a automobile accident. They trust that a oil is a materialisation of their son’s spirit, and explain that over a years it has created his birth date on a walls regulating a oil, as good as a accumulation of Christian eremite symbols.

“My son’s suggestion is in this house. He desired God and Jesus. He has come to this residence and a oil is his spirit,” the Tannous said. “’He was always religious. He carried Rosary beads and he had a cranky tattooed on his back. He wanted to assistance people in life and this is his approach of doing that in death.”

Although endless contrast of a oil has been finished over a years, no reason of a start has ever been given. All that has been detected is that it seems to enclose water, bullion and a protected turn of uranium.

One of a initial “miracles” attributed to a residence was a lady who became profound with her third child after praying there, notwithstanding her doctors insisting that pregnancy was rarely unlikely.


Over a decade after a oil initial appeared, people from all around a universe are still entrance to revisit a house. Ít even has a possess Facebook page, where many users are pity conspicuous stories about their visits to a house, such as: “’My crony came to a residence 5 years ago for my son who was ill with Neuroblastoma – cancer during age 2.5 years. He is now 8.5 years and has survived from this terrible disease.”

Despite a homeowners’ claims that there are no receptive explanations for what is happening, a residence has a satisfactory share of detractors. Tim Mendham, executive officer and editor of Australian Skeptics, said: “If we can be so cynical, a early photos uncover a oil during shoulder height, that was a right tallness for someone throwing it on a wall. Only now is it aloft and on a roof,” he said.  


People’s doubt is not but precedent. Many such “miracles” have been disproven in a past. For example, in Sicily, a “weeping Madonna” statue allegedly strew tears with clearly no receptive explanation, and it was even famous by a Catholic church as a legitimate miracle. However, it was after suggested to be a feign when a chemistry researcher was means to yield a receptive reason for a phenomenon.

However, Sydney’s Miracle House has been around for a decade, and so distant no one has been means to explain because a walls keep oozing a puzzling oil. People from all over a universe revisit it each day, and some massage a oil on their skin, pryaing that it will miraculously reanimate their health problems.


“We collect a oil on string nap and concede people to massage it on their skin. It has helped heal people and has answered their prayers,” Lina Tannous said. “We don’t charge, there are no donations. We have open times from 11am 5 days a week.”

The fact that a Tannous don’t use their spectacle residence for distinction or attention, even refusing to give interviews over a years, has usually strengthened Christians’ faith that this is a loyal miracle, so they keep entrance to it.
