Crosses of light in Germany
"It is calming - like a
The Istabas family, which owns a Turkish restaurant in Germany, discovered
miraculous crosses of light in their flat's windows before Christmas in 1997.
About a year ago a Turkish family living in Germany were given a huge wooden cross
as a gift. Shortly afterwards, crosses of light began appearing in the windows of their flat. The
Isatabas family, faithful Aramaic Christians, have lived in Germany for 15 years and own a Turkish
restaurant in Aschaffenburg.
Mrs. Isatabas, interviewed by Andrea Bistrich for Share
International, said: "I first discovered the cross just before Christmas 1997. I had been out doing
some shopping and was waiting at the traffic light. The light was on in our flat, and the restaurant was
also lit up. You automatically look there. Suddenly you notice the cross. You know, it's exactly the
Christian cross which is a symbol of our faith in Him. I instantly went into our flat to check. This
happened just before Christmas 1997."
She has no doubt it is a miracle. "Now, when I
have problems, I pray," she said. Problems include scepticism from the Church ("Not at all
interested") and neighbours. "Many of them are laughing at us," said Mrs. Isatabas,
"they don't believe in it. But the fact is: we have a cross of light. What can we do if one day a
cross appears in our window? But when you tell them this is a miracle from God they all say: You're mad!
We've had the window glass checked by a glass firm and they told us the cross is not caused by the glass.
They said that is impossible."
If she had a choice, would she keep it? "Definitely
yes," she said. "It is calming, like a protection. It gives you hope."
(Benjamin Creme's Master confirms that the crosses were manifested by Maitreya.)
