Saint Gregory Thaumaturgus Biography

Saint Gregory Thaumaturgus was Destined to a well off and separated agnostic family. Prepared in law and talk in his childhood. Brother by marriage to the Roman legislative leader of Palestine. His dad kicked the bucket when Theodore was age 14. The kid had initially intended to learn at the graduate school in Beirut, however, when he touched base at Caesarea with his brother by marriage escort, he experienced Origen, leader of the catechetical school in Alexandria, Egypt. He and his sibling Athenodorus each surrendered the possibility of graduate school, moved toward becoming understudies of Origen, and changed over to Christianity; Theodore changed his name to Gregory. Considered way of thinking and religious philosophy for a long time under Origen. Come back to Pontus c.238.

Cleric of Caesarea, a bishopric with just 17 Christians when he arrived. Gregory changed over the vast majority of his church district; convention says there were just 17 agnostics left at the season of his passing. Established the festival of saints, lessons about the holy people, and festivity of holy person feast days as an approach to show agnostics the Church. During the Decian oppressions c.250, he and his rush fled into the desert. Worked among the debilitated when the plague struck before long, and with displaced people during the attack of Pontus by the Goths in 252. Gone to the First Council of Antioch in 264 and 265. Restricted the sins of Sabellianism and Tritheism. Utilized his legitimate preparing to support his parishioners, and settle questions between them without taking their issues to the common courts constrained by agnostics. Managed the chamber that picked Saint Alexander the Charcoal Burner as the main cleric of Comana. Holy person Macrina the Elder heard Gregory lecture ordinarily in her childhood and passed his knowledge onto her grandsons Saint Basil the Great and Saint Gregory of Nyssa. Noted philosophical author.

As you may anticipate from somebody surnamed the Wonder Worker, there were numerous phenomenal occasions throughout Gregory’s life.

Holy person Gregory of Nyssa composes that the Wonder-Worker was the main individual known to get a dream of the Theotokus. The Virgin and Saint John the Baptist appeared to him in a dream, and gave him what turned into an announcement of teaching on the Trinity.

Gregory had the intensity of mending by laying on of his hands. Frequently the mending was powerful to the point that the patient was relieved of his sickness, and turned into an intense proselyte on the spot.

During the development of a congregation for his developing rush, the manufacturers kept running into an issue with an enormous covered stone. Gregory requested the stone to move off the beaten path of his congregation; it did.

So as to prevent the River Lycus from it’s incessant and harming floods, Gregory planted his staff at a sheltered point close to the waterway bank. He at that point asked that the stream could never ascend past the staff. The staff flourished, developed into an enormous tree, and the waterway never overflowed past it again. This demonstration prompted his support against floods and flooding.

Two neighbourhood agnostics, hearing that Gregory was a delicate touch for cash, chose to con the cleric. One lay adjacent to the street where Gregory was voyaging and claimed to be dead. The other halted the diocesan, argued destitution, and requested cash to cover his dead companion. Gregory had no cash with him, so he removed his shroud and tossed it over the “dead” man, telling the “live” one to sell the shroud and utilize the assets. At the point when Gregory had proceeded onward, the “live” extortionist found that his companion had passed on.

Two siblings in Gregory’s bishopric had acquired a land parcel that contained a lake. Incapable to choose how to partition the lake, the two chose equipped battle to settle the issue. On the night prior to the fight, Gregory appealed to God for a quiet answer for the issue. The following morning the siblings found that the lake had evaporated leaving effectively dividable homestead land.

During Gregory’s time in the desert during the Decian mistreatments, a source advised the specialists where to discover the minister. Watchmen went to the site, however, discovered only two trees remaining in disengagement in the desert. The witness returned to the spot and found that what the troopers had seen as trees were really Gregory and an elder in the petition. This persuaded the witness of the truth of Gregory’s God, and he changed over.

When coming back from the wild, Gregory needed to look for sanctuary from an unexpected and fierce tempest. The main structure close-by was an agnostic sanctuary. Gregory made the indication of the cross to sanitize the spot, at that point went through the night there in supplication, holding up out the tempest. The following morning, the agnostic cleric landed to get his morning prophets. The evil spirits who had been taking on the appearance of agnostic divine beings exhorted him that they couldn’t remain in the purged sanctuary or close to the blessed man. The minister took steps to gather the counter Christian specialists to capture Gregory. The religious administrator worked out a note perusing “Gregory to Satan: Enter”. With this “authorization slip” close by, the agnostic cleric had the option to bring his evil presences once more.

A similar agnostic cleric, understanding that his divine beings unquestioningly complied with Gregory’s single God, found the minister and asked how it was finished. Gregory showed the sinister reality of Christianity. Lacking confidence, the cleric requested an indication of God’s capacity. Gregory requested a huge shake to move starting with one spot then onto the next; it did. The cleric quickly surrendered his previous lifestyle, and in the end turned into a minister under religious administrator Gregory. This requesting about of rocks prompted Gregor
