The Appearance of Saint Hierotheos to a Greek Nun During World War 2

The presence of Saint Hierotheos in the Monastery of Panagia Kyparisiotissa and Saint Hierotheos in Megara of West Attica is noticeable.

At the time of the Second World War, one of the nuns, Sister Salome Adamakis, was overcome by human weakness and feared the danger of the Germans who went to the Sacred Monastery every now and then, as they were looking for English soldiers. So she decided to secretly leave the Monastery of Panagia Kyparisiotissa and Saint Hierotheos.

Leaving, therefore, secretly, she clearly saw before her a white bearded priest in a glittering robe, who asked her: "Where are you going?"

She answered with the truth, saying she is leaving the Monastery.

And he sternly told her: "Do I not guard my house?"

Then he disappeared.

The nun Salome immediately understood that it was the Saint and fearfully returned the Monastery again, telling everyone about what happened.
