The Lord is with Thee! Blessed is the womb that carried Christ, and the paps which fed our Lord God and Savior!"Once this pious cleric fell ill with a dangerous sickness: his tongue began to rot, and the pain was so great that he would lose his reason. Coming to, the ailing one would say his usual prayer to the Theotokos and immediately saw a beautiful youth at his bedside. This was his Guardian Angel. Looking with compassion upon the ailing one, the angel called to the Most Holy Theotokos, raising up a prayer f healing. Suddenly the Theotokos Herself appeared and sent a sign of Her ineffable mercy: the sick one felt himself to be completely healthy, entered the church, and went to the kliros with the other chanters.
