When Saint Nikephoros the Leper Appeared and Banished Away the Sadness of Elder Eumenios Saridakis

After the repose of Saint Nikephoros the Leper, Elder Eumenios Saridakis was sad, which led to the following miracle, as testified by Elder Eumenios himself:

"Once, when I was very sad, I saw my door open and Father Nikephoros entered. He stood over me and said: 'Come now, blessed one, do not be sad, do not cry,' and he began to caress my head. And, the more he caressed me, the more the air increased. The air of the Holy Spirit increased, till it entirely filled me, filled me with breath, with air that came out of the caress of his hand, and my sadness vanished."
