Faith and gratitude
Thousands gather at the hermitage every 22nd of the month, on the anniversary of a healing performed on Nohad El Shami. She saw St Charbel in a dream and he told her the healing was "to let people see and return to their faith." The saint said: "I ask you to visit my hermitage in Annaya on the 22nd of every month and attend Mass regularly for the rest of your life."
