Question 354

I was wondering in the orthodox religion, Which ayion do you ask for healing?     

   

 

Answer to Question 354

 

People have associated certain saints which certain healings for example St. Paraskevi is considered the saint to beseech for illnesses to do with the eyes, St Mama for hearing, and St. Pathenios of Lampsaka for cancer, but saints do not heal of their own power. We pray to a saint and the saint prays to God on our behalf so all healing comes from God. Therefore all saints can heal
