Description

Icon with Saint Paisios on Naturally Aged Wood

At this beautiful serigraph there is the representation of Saint Paisios of Mount Athos, who 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

The history of this icon with Saint Paisios has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was part from a cell at Mount Athos which was renovated. It has been carefully cut and preserved by monks who created these collectible icons. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
