New Saints Canonized: Five Athonite Elders

Sunday, October 27, 2019

On a recent pilgrimage to the ancient monasteries of Mount Athos, Greece, His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew made the surprise and joyous announcement of the canonization of five holy elders who labored and ministered on the Holy Mount.  The new saints include: Elder Daniel of Katounakia (+1929) Elder Ieronymos of Simonopetra Monastery (+1957), Elder Joseph the Hesychast (+1959), Elder Sophrony of Essex, England (+1993) and Elder Ephraim of Katounakia (+1998).

These new saints spent most of their lives inhabiting the ancient monasteries of Mount Athos. Mount Athos is a peninsula in northeastern Greece that has been solely devoted to the monastic life for over 1,000 years.
