“Keep saying The Prayer! Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me! Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me!”

“Keep saying The Prayer! Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me! Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me! This is what will save you. The Name of Christ will illumine your mind (nous); it will strengthen your Soul; it will help you in the war against the demons; it will cultivate the virtues; and it will become everything for you.”

Once while Elder Joseph the Hesychast was Praying for a departed Soul who had been condemned, he had the following vision: “As I was Praying, I saw the late Father George Karslidis in front of me. He is a contemporary Saint. I managed to meet him because he was still alive when I was in the world. Ever day, he served the Liturgy and commemorated thousands of names. Afterwards, he would go to the tombs and read Trisagion Prayers and Memorial Services for the departed, all day long. I saw him in a vision and heard him saying to me in great amazement: “Wow! Until today, I thought that the deceased were only saved with Liturgies and Memorial Services. But today I saw and realised that people in hell are also saved with Prayer Ropes.” Again he repeated with admiration: “Yes, people are also saved with Prayer Ropes.” – Abbot Haralambos Dionysiatis
