Tears of Repentance No 2: True Experiences in a Greek Taxi Cab

by Athanasios Katigas

This is the second book of the series “Tears of Repentance”. The reason for publishing these real-life experiences and stories is to glorify the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and for the benefit of people’s immortal souls. Out of obedience to the wise counsel of my spiritual father I kept these events hidden for many years, even from my wife and children. I thank God from the depths of my heart that He granted me to be a part of such life-changing experiences because through them I was able to reflect upon and understand to some degree what real repentance, humility and love in Christ mean.

Athanasios Katigas of Sykies (suburb of Thessaloniki, Greece) answered the divine call to a life of repentance after the fervent prayers of his quadriplegic childhood friend Savvas, and the sound instruction of a lay preacher, Panagiotis Panagiotides. Thanasi used the therapeutic discipline of our Church, to free himself from the nets of human passions by practicing strict obedience under his seasoned spiritual father Triantafyllos Xeros. Thanasi’s love for Christ did not permit him to leave our Lord at home (as most of us do), but he took Him along on his daily route as a Cab driver. Thanasi’s zeal for the word of God initiated hundreds of spiritual conversations, awakenings and transformations in his cab, with clients from all walks of life. Thanasi’s genuine simplicity, a simplicity likened to the fishermen of Galilee served as pure oxygen for hundreds of souls that shared the space of his taxi, some battered and gasping for air from the oxidants of the secular lifestyle.

In The Tears of Repentance, printed multiple times in Greece, and hailed by dozens of Bishops, Thanasi relives some of the most intriguing personal and life changing encounters in his 25-year taxi career.

Tears of Repentance Vol 1 is also in stock. Volume 3 is being published very soon. Look out for it in the coming months!
