Without financial supporters of the Mystagogy Resource Center, it would not exist. One long time supporter is currently facing a crisis of being evicted from her home and having her car repossessed. She and her family need help by this coming Tuesday to prevent this, at least $2,000 is needed. Please help me to give back to her. She would like to remain anonymous, so she asked that any financial aid can be sent through this ministry, which will then be directed to her. Thank you for helping with what you can.

When Saint Nikephoros the Leper Appeared and Saved Elder Eumenios Saridakis from Certain Death


One night, many years after the repose of Saint Nikephoros the Leper, Elder Eumenios Saridakis shut the doors and window in his cell and emptied a large can of strong insecticide, because of the many mosquitos inside, and he fell asleep, not understanding the danger his life was in by inhaling the poison without ventilation.

Elder Eumenios would not have woken up if Saint Nikephoros had not appeared to him and woken him, grabbed him by the hand, and led him outside of his cell.

And before Father Eumenios understood what was going on, Saint Nikephoros said to him:

"My child, do not go back into your cell, unless you first open the doors and the window, so that it can air out good."

Upon saying this, Saint Nikephoros vanished.

When some time had passed and Father Eumenios was able to make sense of everything that happened, including his miraculous rescue, he thanked Saint Nikephoros, who was his beloved spiritual father in life, with all his heart, for saving him from a certain death.
