“No Prayer, my children, gets lost.”

When Saint Iakovos was in the army he received leave to attend Church during Holy Week, however he remained and let his fellow soldier take his place, and he lived Christ’s Resurrection in the Uncreated Light.

The man of God had sacrificed the created light of the Pascha candle, and he received the Uncreated Light of Divinity.

“Yes, my good children! My joy was so great from the Nativity of Christ, that I couldn’t keep it to myself. I said to myself, ‘O Iakovos, go into the forest to chant: ‘Christ is born, Glorify Him”. And as I was chanting the birds came and chanted together with me.”
