Sandblasting gold printing with Agios Stylianos

Agios Stylianos came from a wealthy family, but from an early age he was taught by his parents to be temperate and to consider money as a means of relief and care for the poor and sick. When his parents died, he divided all his inheritance and went to live in the desert as an ascetic. In fact, his fame reached the cities, and many rushed to find him to ask him for spiritual guidance. Saint Stylianos, despite his deserted life, had affection and sympathy towards children. He explained that childhood is by nature more virtuous. Many times parents took their children to him and then the joy of the Saint was very great. By rewarding this sacred feeling, God endowed the Saint with the gift of healing sick children and helping childless women.
