On this past Monday, October 14 (OS) / 27 (NS), the GOC-K  in accordance with the September conciliar decree of the Synod, held the official Glorification of St. Pachomios of Chios.  St. Pachomios reposed in 1905, was a friend of St. Nektarios of Pentapolis, and was founder of many monasteries and sketes.  He was 65 years of age at his repose, and since his repose has been the subject of popular veneration and devotion. Archbishop Kallinikos, along with Met. Chrysostomos of Attica, and other bishops and clergy  celebrated the services; Vespers was celebrated on Sunday evening, at which took place the installation of the icon and relics of St. Pachomios.  On Monday Matins and Liturgy were celebrated as well, commemorating St. Pachomius as a saint.

The Glorification of St. Pachomios follows in short order the recent Glorification of the Holy Elder Ieronymous of Aegina.  St. Ieronymous was a famous God-bearing elder who reposed in the late 1960s and was a firm members and defender of the True Orthodox Church of Greece (i.e., ‘Old Calendarist’ Church), and rejected the claims of the Ecumenist-Modernist State New Calender Church.  Attempts to co-opt the memory of St. Ieronymous by New Calendarist have proven futile due to the well-known history surrounding him.
