Saint Panagis Basias the Fool for Christ,
on the island of Kefallonia, Greece (+1888) and the woman
who revolted against God
A certain mother on the island of Kefallonia, Greece, who had just lost her two sons, one after the other, was totally devastated and revolted against God. Saint Panagis Basias ran to her house but as she refused to open the door cursing him, he opened her door by making the sign of the Cross on it. When he entered the living room , the portraits of the deceased were on the wall.The two faces came to life and they drew pistols and killed each other. Saint Panagis revealed to their mother afterwards that they had fallen in love with the same woman and they were about to die in this manner, had God not intervened to save them from this greater disaster.
