COMMEMORATION OF OUR FATHER AMONG THE SAINTS
THEOPHANES, RECLUSE OF VYSHENSK (Jan 10th):
...at the litia we read:
O divinely wise father Theophanes,
good and faithful friend of the Lord,
adornment of hierarchs and glory of the fathers:
As when thou wast alive,
so after thy repose hath God,
Who is wonderous in His saints,
given thee the grace of healings.
Pray now unceasingly to the Lord in our behalf,
that our souls may find mercy.
Is the life of St theofan available with some recounting
of the healings mentioned (and any other mirable dictu
events connected with his life/repose/intercession)?
