Mrs. Sh. S. N. said: During the 1980s, when I was fifteen, I first heard from some of my relatives about the miracles that God had performed through the prayers of the Martyr Abi Seifein. They also told me about the Abbess of his community, Mother Erene. One day they invited me to go with them to pray at the convent of the Martyr in Old Cairo and to attend a meeting with Mother. But I refused and muttered some unsuitable words like, “You are all crazy about Mother Erene. You keep talking about her. Leave her alone. She is just a nun.”
Mother Erene relates: One day, not long after I had arrived in Krair, the nun in charge told me me that the guard on the north side urgently wanted to see me. I asked her to show him into the reception room and to serve him tea. When I saw him, he told me, ‘I need desperately xxxx’. It was a huge sum of money. So I replied, ‘Sorry, but I cannot afford that. We are poor and we are barely living.'

While you drank your coffee, they completed your papers". He then continued with his gently fatherly love, "My son, when you have something important to do, you must first pray the liturgy".

Not only during exam time, but to develop the habit of asking help from the saints during… Continue reading Miraculous help in times of exams by the intercessions of recent Coptic saints

Once the fathers of the Sourian monastery wanted to ensure the wellbeing of Fr. Faltaous, especially because no one ever saw him, and they were worried about him living alone in such a desolate part of the monastery. They knew how difficult it must be to live in that daunting area, especially because they knew the extent of the fierceness and ruthlessness of the devils and their wiles – against any monk who longs to lead a solitary life dedicated to God.

Indeed great is the Your power O God, and great are You in Your saints. Mother Erene saved our life and took us out of a deep pit.
