Glory to Thee, O Lord! FINALLY!

Elder (Papou) Joseph the Hesychast has been canonized!!! GLORY TO THEE, O LORD, GLORY TO THEE!!!

I’m so overjoyed! Last night over supper my godmother, who is visiting us for the weekend, mentioned she heard Papou would be canonized soon and I have been thinking about it all day. I’ve heard he would be canonized “soon” for quite some time but this time felt different, more imminent.

We went for a hike this afternoon after church and I spent the time reflecting on what I would do to celebrate his canonization whenever that took place. And just a few hours later we received the good news: he was canonized today. Along with three notable holy elders, Daniel of Katounakia, Ephraim of Katounakia (the disciple of St. Papou Joseph) and Ieronymous of Simonpetra. May we have all of their blessings!

St. Joseph was instrumental in my conversion to Orthodoxy and now his prayers (which have always been strong) are that much stronger. Call on him and see what miracles happen!

Glory to God!
