Father Evmenios would say how, one night, after having readied Father Nikephoros for sleep, he also went to rest in his cell. However, he could not sleep. He had great concern, perhaps because he did not do something well, or perhaps he forgot to close the oven. These and other things passed through his thoughts. He rose up, therefore, and went to the cell of the old Father. To not bother him, lest he was perhaps sleeping, he considered it best not to knock on the door, nor to say “Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy upon us”, and await for the response within of “Amen”, as is done with monks. Very slowly he opened the door, and what did he see? He saw Father Nikephoros hovering one meter from the ground with his arms raised and praying. His face shined like the sun. Once Father Evmenios saw this fearsome spectacle, without saying a word he very carefully shut the door and ran to his cell. There he fell with his face to the ground and began to weep with tears, lest he saddened the old Father for having not knocked on the door and seeing him in his wondrous stance. He also wept for joy, because he saw for himself how great and virtuous his Spiritual Father was, Father Nikephoros. In the morning, as he went to minister to him as usual, he gave him a deep prostration and asked forgiveness for his misconduct. He, with a slight smile, immediately forgave him and told him not to reveal to anyone what he saw, as long as the same was alive.
