Saints · St Abraam of Fayoum

An Englishman’s account of when he met St. Abraam of Fayoum

There is a man in Egypt whose name is unknown to the ruling class, and who is yet the most talked of and the most deeply venerated man in all the valley of the Nile.

Miracles · Mother Erene · Saints

Lord of Glory: “She can put up with this tribulation, let her take more reward. I console her in other times.”

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. She saved us from great pains and complete darkness with the power of heaven. Thus the light of God shone upon us and defeated the powers of evil.
