On September 19, the Orthodox Church remembers the miracle performed by Archangel Michael in Honeh in the IV century.
In Phrygia, not far from the city of Hierapolis, in the area of Herotope, there was a temple in the name of Archangel Michael. This temple was built by the efforts of one of the residents of the city of Laodicea in gratitude to God and Saint Michael for healing his mute daughter with water from a spring that flowed next to the temple.
Archangel Michael, appearing in a dream to the father of a dumb girl, revealed to Tom that his daughter would receive the gift of speech by drinking water from a spring. The girl really received healing at the source and began to speak. After this miracle, the father and daughter and his entire family were baptized, and in gratitude for the healing, a temple was built.
Not only Christians, but also pagans began to come to the source, many of whom, having received healing, turned to Christ.
In the church of the Holy Archangel Michael, a pious man named Archippus served as a sexton for 60 years. By preaching about Christ and by the example of his life, he led many pagans to believe in the Lord.
For their part, some of the pagans, annoyed with Archippus because of his sermons, planned to kill him and destroy the temple. To do this, they connected two mountain rivers into one channel and directed their flow to the temple.
Saint Archippus prayed fervently to Saint Michael for the prevention of disaster. At his prayer, the archangel himself appeared near the temple, who opened a wide cleft in the mountain with a blow of his wand and ordered the waters of a raging stream to rush into it. Thus, the temple was saved.
Seeing such a miracle, the pagans fled in fear, and Saint Archippus and other Christians glorified God and thanked Archangel Michael for his help. The place where the miracle took place was called Khona, which means "hole", "cleft".
