The Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, during its gathering today, moved to canonize Elder Porphyrios, under the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

The canonization of the Elder will take place on December 1st 2013 in the Holy Women's Hesychasterion "Metamorphosis tou Soteros" ("The Transfiguration of the Savior") [Milesi, Attica]

For the life of St. Porphyrios, see: Hopefully there will be more provided about this great Saint of our days in the near future. May he intercede for us all and help us!

Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
