"Monk Chariton the Kafsokalyvitan was the spiritual grandson of the hesychast Chariton. He followed the blessed path of his grandfather and was devoted to the struggle and trial of ascesis, even at a young age. Frequently he would fall into ecstasy while eating. His whole life was a constant vigil and prayer, and his death was one of a saint. He became bedridden and just before his end he had a vision. “Father Athanasios,” he said to his brother monk, “look there at so many children all dressed in white. Oh how beautiful! They are holding flowers in their hands. I thank you, God, that You have allowed me to see Your angels.”"
