Metropolitan Cyprian, a spiritual son of this holy Eldress, provides us with a moving account of her astounding and Grace-filled life, placing her in the context of “Blessed Pontos,” a region which has given rise to so many Saints through the centuries. A contemporary prophetess, Mother Myrtidiotissa was endowed with the spiritual gift of clairvoyance and frequently conversed with the Theotokos and other Saints. Her fragrant Relics are still a source of miraculous healings.
