Description

Icon with Saints Paisios, Arsenios & Arsenios Simonopetritis on Naturally Aged Wood

This is an excellent icon with Saints Paisios, Arsenios and elder Arsenios Simonopetritis. Saint Paisios was widely known for his life and asceticism. After his death the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew began his holy process and was ranked Paisios Saint of the Orthodox Church by the Ecumenical Patriarchate on January 13, 2015. Saint Paisios lived in the last years of his life in the cell of Panagouda, which he found abandoned. There he worked hard with a crowd of people who visited him by offering spiritual help with his prayers and teachings.

Saint Arsenios was also known for his ascetic life. He lived with self-denial, loving and honoring first God and then his neighbor. It is known that two days of the week Wednesday and Friday he was confined to his cell and prayed. His remains were transferred by Saint Paisios at the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian at Souroti, Thessaloniki.

Together with the two saints, there is also the figure of Elder Arsenios Simonopetritis. Monk Arsenios Simonopetritis, known as Pantelis Tzekos, came from Corfu and he was a soldier with Saint Paisios. When he was severely wounded, the saint saved his life. Elder Arsenios and Saint Paisios were connected with a brotherly friendship.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with Saints Paisios, Arsenios and elder Arsenios Simonopetritis came from a renovated cell from Mount Athos which has suffered many damages through years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. Monks are replacing doors, window shutters or ceiling beams but they are keeping the pieces of wood so they can reuse them. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks such as these icons. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks reuse them and they are giving us a small piece of this history.
