The complaint of St. Nektarios

St. Nektarios the Wonderworker (source)
St. Nektarios once appeared to a most-pious cleric and complained:
"It's as if we Saints are in retirement...The people don't pray to us, don't entreat us, don't ask us for anything, don't give us any handiwork to do. They don't give us the opportunity to pray to God for them..."
(source: God is with us, are we with Him?, puublication of Orthodox Kypseli)
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
