Articles & videos from the life

of Sister Nun Porphyria the former TAXI driver in Athens, Greece

Sister Nun Porphyria was born and raised in Piraeus, Athens, Greece. Exercise at times various professions. For ten years, 1997-2007, she worked as a taxi driver in Athens and Piraeus. Meet the modern virtuous and inserts Elder Porphyrios (now he is Saint Porphyrios) of books on the life and teachings. This acquaintance brought her closer to Christ and conscious Christian life. With a strong faith and deep love to God has been working His glory and the salvation of others. So the taxi became a modern pulpit, which led many to change life, blessed lesions. In recent years she became a monk with dual purpose: to fight distractions for salvation and to minister to the modern investigational human.

The Nun Porphyria, tells us:

“The shift is my night, eleven o’clock in the evening. I driving in the street Piraeus to Square Omonia, the center of Athens. Inside the taxi, as usual, I was talking to my sweet Jesus. Spontaneously I told myself to Christ: “The first man who would I bore signal to stop, I will go him without money, sufficient to bring him near You. Does not stop it until it reached at the streets Piraeus and Menandrou. There in the corner stood a girl. Stop and look at her. Waiting customers for payday. Without thinking, I went near her.

-Good evening!

-Good evening!, she replied.

-You know, this time, I feel a lot of pain in my soul and I with someone to share.

She looked puzzled and says:

-Well, and you found me to talk?

-Yes! My heart tells me you’d understand me.

-You know what I do for myself?

-I see.

-And you want to talk with me?

-Yes! I want to talk with you. You’re wasting both today payday? May be able to help me and be saved.

-Come, he says reluctantly.

-OK, let’s go!

Threw a glance around her and went quickly into the taxi.

Glad I did, but puzzled; what I would say? “Oh my God! Come down and help me, what do I do now? What to tell? Once properly introduced, I said:

-Difficult professions choose to do, huh?

And so begins a very nice chat.

In the beginning around the taxi and difficulties. And timidly started to fall into its own life. However, we arrived at the Kavouri. I said:

-We will come down here to drink coffee and continue our conversation.

Then she told me something that moved me:

-I am not ashamed to go through together?

As I understand, the dress was different from mine, and also the whole look. I said:

-NO! I am not ashamed! Be ashamed of what brought you to this state! For me you are a sweet and tender creature of God.

We went in; looks all fell into upon us. But that does not interest me at all, nor the bruises that had been on her feet made me ashamed and start to run. For me that time was sacred. Should, with the help of God, to resurrect pasῃ sacrifice this girl. Should, with the help of God, to resurrect this girl.

Like other times, I feel that I didn’t speak, but someone else from me; through the same thing happened in this case; someone else to help push this girls. He told me all her life from her childhood until today. And also, how they had to bore this profession.

A profession painful, not just hard. This profession thee destroys the personality, dignity, forget if you are a man, I forget you, thou livest and function with want of others. You do not exist anywhere, because, apart from your flesh, that is why he has nothing. So we’re obliged to obey them. That is, you are in obedience of the devil and not of God. The difficulty of this art to hear for the first time this evening. Believe me, a sword pierced my heart! Confession this girl with so much hurt, pain attributable not remember to have felt in my life!

Then I started to speak about God and the great happiness which we gives when we are with Him; spoke to the Virgin and our how sweet, tender and protective is for her children. Talked about the wonders of our Saints, For the Elder Porphyrios of Athens, for the miracles that lived in the taxi and many people with me. Spoke about the power of confession, Holy Communion and for a lot of issues around the God and faith. Tried to persuade her to change her life, letting my tears running then unstoppable, holding her hands tenderly.

When anymore, tired from the crying, I told her: “Time is going,” I paid and got up to leave.

When you reach the taxi and waited for the big surprise. He came close to me and says:

-Lets me hug?

-And, of course, be hugged, I told her with much joy.

Hugged me and then burst into sobs. Through sobs of them told me:

-Help me, help me, your God sent you to me, help me to change my life, I tired to make this work! I am very new, as you say and you, although I feel a hundred years old. Help me make a new start, to do a family, to have children. You are right, I can be restarted from the beginning. Your God sent you to me. Please, take me in your God and, please, tell him me and give me what I gave you. And I become happy and joyful as much as you.

I promised to help her. I host her for one month in my house. One month agonizing and dangerous to me. Because, as you know, these girls have someone who “protects”. Risked my life sometimes. But I was sure that God would not happen to me any harm; contrary would help me save this girl; because He sent me to her.

So this is happened; From that night her life changed integrator. Today she is married, happy and near to God, and she has two kids.

That night was blessed, was divine! “.

祈禱不是義務 Is Prayer a Duty? (東正教)

真正的禱告,如同親吻。
藉著禱告,你親吻神,如同親吻所愛的人。
藉著禱告,你透過神,親吻了你所愛的人。
藉著禱告,你讓神不得安寧,直到祂答應保守你所愛的。

這種發自內心的祈禱,無時無刻,不論何地,
你都可以禱告。

如果你讓祈禱成為例行公事,
或讓祈禱成為繳稅般的義務,
你就殺了祈禱。

Данас 15 година од отмице и мученичког страдања оца Харитона Лукића (+15. јун 1999)

Црна Река слави Христова војника
Харитона светог, славног мученика
што за Христа страда и крв своју проли
па на небу за нас Бога моли
И када ми душа у невољи тоне
помози, помози свети Харитоне
оче Харитоне, Богом изабрани
мучениче свети, Богом овенчани
у очима мојим, Твоја жртва блиста
своју крв си дао за веру и Христа
И када ми душа у невољи тоне
помози, помози свети Харитоне
тих и крепке воље, ватрени ревнитељ
без страха од смрти, подвига љубитељ
Богољубним срцем обдарен си био
зато си за Христа радо крв пролио
И када ми душа у невољи тоне
помози, помози свети Харитоне
духом из подземља, чопор озверени
жедан србске крви беше побеснели
хтео је и Христа крвљу да измије
ал безуман не зна да крв душу мије
И када ми душа у невољи тоне
помози, помози свети Харитоне
ти ликујеш сада с хором мученика
док ја битку бијем с надом самртника
да одолим бури овом лудом свету
зато ми помози, помози детету
И када ми душа у невољи тоне
помози, помози свети Харитоне
да очувам наше свето православље
од царева србских обитељи славне
покајањем топлим душу да омијем
да небеско царство вером задобијем
И када ми душа у невољи тоне
помози, помози свети Харитоне
мучениче свети, молим ти се молим
помози да свакој напасти одолим
па кад крстом злобну аждају победим
да са Тобом Христа Цара нашег гледим
И када ми душа у невољи тоне
помози, помози свети Харитоне

如何愛「惡人」?HOW TO LOVE A BAD PERSON? (東正教) – English & Chinese video

如何愛「惡人」?How to Love a Bad Person? (東正教)

首先,與那些被惡人深切傷害的受害者,一同哀哭。
然後,試著不要「恨」對方。
接著,試著理解對方之所以成為惡人的原因。
最後,意識到對方變成如此,我們都有責任。

也要記得,我們不是任何人的最後審判者。

但是,在我們談論稀有的、最高的「愛」之前,
在我們談論如何愛「惡人」之前,
先思想我們如何「關心」我們「身邊的人」,
關心我們的家人、朋友、妻子、孩子,
踏出最實際的第一步。
