Cause for transformation

9 August 2022

The sanctity of a person isn’t just a cause for those people who meet them to be transformed for the better and become more perfect, but it’s also a cause of the transformation of irrational creation itself, and provides us with an image of the life of paradise. We come across this not only in the lives of the ancient saints, but also in the modern sanctified figures of our Church- who’ve already departed this life- such as Papa-Efraim Katounakiotis, Elder Sophrony, Elder Païsios, Elder Porfyrios and Elder Iakovos Tsalikis.
