No. 12 of St. Paisius Orthodox Monastery Series

“We set forth this publication, in honor of St. Mary, as a means of intercession for those struggling against the passion of lust; for this holy Saint, beloved by all, knew firsthand what the battle entails and how to conquer it. It is worth noting that, through her powerful repentance, and the grace of Christ Who washes away all sins, St. Mary now shines with a profound chastity of mind and body; thus, we look to her not as a harlot but as a glittering star in the firmament of Christ’s chosen ones. St. Mary gives to us all an example of perseverance, set purpose in our strivings against sins (whatever they may be), and unbounded faith in Christ’s holy Mother, the Theotokos. We may recall that St. Gregory Palamas made great use of the prayer of St. Mary to the Theotokos: ‘O Lady, Lady, do not forsake me!’ He made it a rule for himself that, before taking up a book, he would make three prostrations before the icon of the Theotokos and, with great compunction, say that prayer, begging the Theotokos to enlighten his darkness and lead him by the hand. It is our fervent desire that this little publication may prove useful to all those who find refuge under the protection of the Theotokos, through the intercession of our Venerable Mother Mary of Egypt.”

    Second Edition, Reprinted with additions By Constantine Cavarnos Volume 3 of [link BKC001S]Modern Orthodox Saints[/link] “St. Nicodemos the Hagiorite was born in 1749 in Naxos, one of the Aegean islands. He received his elementary education there. His teacher was Archimandrite Chrysanthos Aitolos, (d. 1785), brother of St. Cosmas. A distinguished teacher, Chrysanthos taught for a time at the Patriarchal school at Constantinople before he became Director of the school in Naxos. He shared Cosmas’ sentiments and convictions; and thus the powerful message and example of the saint of Aitolia began to influence Nicodemos at a very early age, when Cosmas was traveling about as a missionary.” —“Introductory” CONTENTS PREFACE INTRODUCTORY THE LIFE OF SAINT NICODEMOS    By Gerasimos Micragiannanitis, of Mount Athos WORKS OF THE SAINT WRITINGS OF THE SAINT SELECTED PASSAGES FROM THE THE WORKS OF ST.
