About: The relationship between Saint Paisios and Saint Euphemia

+

“It is me, Euphemia, Father.”

He said to her: “I would like you to tell me how you endured your Martyrdom.” The Saint replied: “Father, if I knew back then how Eternal Life would be and the Heavenly beauty the Souls enjoy by being next to God, I honestly would have asked for my Martyrdom to last forever, as it was absolutely nothing compared to the Gifts of the Grace of God!”

Saint Paisios asked the Nuns of his Monastery to paint an Icon of Saint Euphemia, carefully describing every detail of how he saw her.

“Let your room be like a small Church with Icons, which you like, and you will see: you will always find consolation there.”
