Eldress Myrtidiotissa: The Ascetic Struggler of Klissoura (1886–1974)

by Metropolitan Cyprian of Oropos and Fili
Translated by Hieromonk Patapios
Edited by Archbishop Chrysostomos

“Let the figure of this valiant struggler be our guiding light on the path that leads to our own Cross and Resurrection, a path characterized by inner contrition, joyful sorrow, patience, hope, and compassion. I have attempted to penetrate the inner recesses of a miraculous world and to approach what lay hidden beneath the external insignificance of a woman who was treated with disdain. ‘Thou hast achieved the heights by humility, riches by poverty....’ She was a treasure concealed in rags, unkempt and coarse, who lived in unending obscurity, so that God might manifest Himself; she was a place in which God revealed Himself to the humble. She was honorable before God and a precious vessel of His wonders. A purveyor of our sanctified Tradition, flowing in the goldbearing stream of an everlasting holiness, she lived already in the present life the glory of the Kingdom. She belonged to that familiar choir that enraptures us with its radiant beauty and gives us courage with its ‘paradoxes’ and ‘contradictions.’”
