Description

Icon with Saint Paisios on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with 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

This icon with the representation of Saint Paisios on naturally aged wood is a great gift for our loved ones. This piece of wood was once part of a door leaf in a cell at Mount Athos. After the renovation works monks decided to use it for icons. This small piece of wood carries within blessings and prayers from the monks who lived at this cell. On the front the monk placed the representation of the saint. On Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and many of them are located there for centuries. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks decided to reuse them and give us a small piece of this history.
