A New Saint is Canonized! Elder Iakovos

Saturday, February 17, 2018

On Monday, November 27, 2017, the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, along with the Holy Synod of Bishops added to the calendar of saints, the Elder Iakovos Tsalikis who fell asleep in the Lord in 1991. His feastday has been set for November 22 (Gregorian Calendar) December 5 (Julian).

The Holy Elder Iakovos (James) was born in 1920 in Asia Minor (present day Turkey) into a pious Greek Orthodox family. He grew up in a world in which the Orthodox people lived under the oppression of the Turkish government. When Iakovos was only two years old, his father was taken away by Turkish authorities and his mother Theodora and family forced to leave their native village never to return. The family emigrated to the Greek island of Evia where by the grace of God they were eventually reunited with Iakovos’ father Stavros. From a young age, Iakovos’ life was centered on his village church. It was said that by the time he was seven years old he knew the Divine Liturgy from memory. At the age of 13 he completed elementary school but due to the family’s poverty he was unable to continue his studies and joined his father at work. He lost his mother in 1942 and was drafted into the army in 1947. Upon his return from the army in 1949 his father died leaving him to care for his sister Anastasia until her marriage in 1952.
