Eduard Masichievici, a young student of great purity

A young student, Eduard Masichievici, of great purity, who was dying, asked for his candle to be lit. But when he awoke from a short sleep, he asked to blow out the wick of the candle, which was to go to others, and said that he had seen the Saviour, who said to him, “I will not take you tonight”. He called him the next night. (Fr. Constantin Voicescu – Father Voicescu, a Confessor of the City, edited by Ioana Iancovinescu, Byzantine Publishing House, Bucharest, 2002)
