Greek Singer Stamatis Kokotas Testifies to a Miracle of Saint Eumenios He Witnessed

On December 12, 1996, on the Greek television show Zougla, hosted by journalist Makis Triantafyllopoulos, one of the most famous Greek singers of the 1960's and 1970's was a guest, Stamatis Kokotas. The program had to do with miracles, and the singer, who considered himself a skeptic unless he saw something with his own eyes, testified regarding a miracle he witnessed when he met Saint Eumenios Saridakis.
The singer was at the Hospital for Infectious Diseases in North Attica, where Saint Eumenios lived and served as a priest at the time, in order to visit someone he knew in the hospital. As he was walking by the rooms, he recalls seeing a priest with another patient. As he was walking and talking with someone, he suddenly heard a commotion coming from another room, where he went to find that people were crying. When he asked what had happened, he was informed that a girl who was a patient was near death and would not survive the night.

The singer felt sorry for the family of the girl, and informed them that he saw a priest in another room with a patient, and he went to get the priest in order to come and read a prayer over the girl.

The priest came and said to those who were there: "Don't cry. She is well."

He then asked to be alone with the girl, so everyone left the room as he remained inside and read a prayer over her. The child immediately recovered and asked for something to eat.

"This happened in front of my eyes," said the singer.

After this took place, journalists went to interview Father Eumenios, but during the interview he never mentioned the incident, instead he told them about another incident where he had a problem with his leg and the Panagia healed him.
