Description

Icon with Saint Paisios on Naturally Aged Wood

Saint Paisios of Mount Athos was respected for his spiritual guidance and ascetic life. After going to many monasteries at last at 1979 he moved to Panagouda, a hermitage belonging to Koutloumousiou Monastery. It was there that his renown grew. Between prayer and assisting his visitors, he only rested for two or three hours each night. The Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate canonized Elder Paisios on 13 January 2015.

Paisios’ sainthood happened quickly according to church standards, and was the second-fastest sainthood in recent church history. On Sunday 24 February 2019, the first Athonite church dedicated to St. Paisios the Athonite was consecrated by His Eminence Metropolitan Panteleimon (Kalafatis) of Xanthi. The church is located in Kapsala, in the area between Karyes and the monasteries of Pantocrator and Stavronikita, where there used to be a skete.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
