In honor of the official Patriarchal numbering among the Saints of St. Sophia the New (7/1/12), I post several hymns to the "Ascetic of the Panagia" below. For pictures from the recent visit of Patriarch Bartholomew to Kastoria and the Monastery of Kleisoura, see: http://www.romfea.gr/epikairotita/13044-patriarxiki-theia-litourgia-agiokatataxi-osias-sofias, http://www.romfea.gr/epikairotita/13048-2012-07-01-16-08-12. For the life of st. Sophia, see: http://full-of-grace-and-truth.blogspot.com/2011/11/st-sophia-righteous-ascetic-of-panagia.html. May she intercede for us all!
