Matushka Theodosia’s counsel to her visitors still resounds in the hearts of those who knew her and life and you have come to know her in the time since her repose: “Never be despondent. The Lord Will arrange everything. Everything will be good for you if you will Believe in Him, hoping Him, and live according to His Commandments. And then you will always be joyful and no one will take that joy from you.”
What a story! She had a terrible accident and was paralyzed from the neck down, and in a coma for 20 years. She woke up and lived another 20 years! She was still paralyzed, but came back a clairvoyant and miracle worker. Glory to God!
You can read about her life in this edition of the Orthodox Word, which can be ordered through: St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood Press in Platina, CA 96076. You will be so happy you did so!
Schemanun Theodosia pray to God for us!
