The Path towards the Light: Orthodoxy’s holy teachers and teachers of other religions

 

by Theodore Riginiotes

 

In a certain village of Messaras lives an elderly lady called G*****, who – to those who know her – know well that God has bestowed her with exceptional charismas.  Once, for example, the Archangel Michael appeared to a certain sick person in Athens who did not know her at all, and announced to him: «I came to heal you, because G*** sent me to you in her prayer.»  The elderly G*** said to me:  «I am no saint; just an old lady who beseeches God for her salvation. If you want a Saint, you should go to so-and-so the ascetic who lives over there, or the other one, ***** who lives in that area» etc., giving me the names of 4-5 contemporary ascetics – mostly unknown – who live in various regions of Crete.
