Elder Paisios, SAINT Paisios!!!



Word is getting around that Elder Paisios was officially canonized today!
We are all waiting the news from Constantinople! 
Meanwhile we are already rejoicing!!!
*
I first saw the news here
and now fellow bloggers are rejoicing here and here,
*
It's still the 12 days of Christmas for us on the Julian calendar,
day 7 in fact and it indeed feels like CHRISTMAS
with a new Saint given to us!!!
*
I've been so happy this morning when I read the news!
Holy Paisios pray to God for us!
May we have your blessing! 
*
Here are some links about the newly Sainted Paisios:
here, here (on children), here (on family life) and here.

Update: Akathist here.

I just read about it on Facebook, via a post by Frederica Matthewes-Green. Looking forward to learning more about him. Holy Paisios, pray for us!
