The Holy Confession & the poison – Fr. George Paulidis, Bishop of Nicea, Piraeus, Greece (+1990)

The Holy Confession the poison

Fr. George Paulidis, Bishop of Nicea, Piraeus, Greece (+1990)

Some Holy Tuesday [Tuesday before Sunday Easter] after a sermon in a church of Lamia, Greece, appeared at the end of his short sermon a young man asking insistently to confess that very evening.

Fr. George was jaded and suggested the next day. But the young were kind and insisted on pressing to receive him that very night.

The heart of Fr. George could not refuse such a persistent. And we can imagine the surprised of Fr.George, when the young man pulled from the pocket and enecheirise a small bottle, telling him:

“My father, I wanted to deliver this bottle contained poison because tonight I was thinking about killing myself. Afterward preaching change my mind…”.

Such was his influence.
