Saint Porphyrios of Kavsokalyvia (1906 – 1991)


Since the writing of this article as stated below, Elder Porphyrios was glorified as a Saint  the Orthodox Church and is commemorated on December 2nd.

There was insufficient room in the December issue of the Messenger to include a summary of the life of the Saint but a fuller version than had been planned is included here.

From the website abbamoses.com

This biographical sketch is from Elder Porphyrios: Testimonies and Experiences, by Klitos Ioannidis.

From a page on the very helpful site OrthodoxPhotos.com

In 2013, after this was written, Elder Porphyrios was glorified as a Saint of the Church. His commemoration is on December 2. A number of books on the Elder's life and teaching are in print; especially recommended is Wounded by Love: The Life and Wisdom of Elder Porphyrios, edited by the Sisters of the Holy Convent of Chrysopis.

His family Elder Porphyrios was born on the 7th of February 1906, in the village of St. John Karystia, near Aliveri, in the province of Evia. His parents were poor but pious farmers. His father's name was Leonidas Bairaktaris and his mother's was Eleni, the daughter of Antonios Lambrou.
