Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

The Priest Who Constantly Laughed During Confession

By Fr. Ephraim Triantafyllopoulos

I met Saint Eumenios Saridakis in the summer of 1990 when I visited the Hospital for Infectious Diseases in Agia Varvara. It was in the middle of my military service for the Air Force. While I confessed a personal difficulty of mine, he laughed constantly having a childlike look that never left him whenever we were together, and then he suggested we do Vespers together. I was his chanter. Afterward I received his blessing and left. May the Saint intercede for me and for all of us, although he constantly did this and does this, but now basically more officially.
