"SAINT EUMENIOS SARIDAKIS" Has Been Officially Recognized as a Saint by the Ecumenical Patriarchate

Updated: Jun 7

The Holy and Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate proceeded with the canonization of St Eumenios Saridakis.

Elder Eumenios was included in the hagiology of the Orthodox Church, following a proposal by the Canonical Committee.

"...Elder Porphyrios said of Elder Eumenius: “Go and receive the wish of Elder Eumenius, because he is the hidden Saint of our days. You can find Elder Eumenios every two hundred years."
A few words about the Elder:

Father Eumenios was born in 1931 in Ethia Monofatsi, in the prefecture of Heraklion, Crete and was the eighth child of a poor & faithful family.

He became a monk at the age of 17, fought for the cultivation of his soul with love and prayer and was severely tested by leprosy, but also later, while he was already a priest, by demonic influence, with which he was tortured psychosomatically and freed after many prayers, vigils and exorcisms in monasteries of Crete, such as the monasteries of Koudouma and Panagia Kaliviani.

The leprosy brought him to the Infectious Diseases Hospital in Agia Varvara, Athens. There he was healed but, seeing the human pain, he decided to stay in the Hospital as a priest, to help as much as he could the relief of his fellow human beings!

Elder Porphyrios said of Elder Eumenius: “Go and receive the wish of Elder Eumenius, because he is the hidden Saint of our days. You can find Elder Eumenios every two hundred years ".

At the Hospital of Infectious Diseases he was fortunate to meet the leper saint monk Nikiforos, who, although blinded by his illness, became a great spiritual father of Christians and a teacher of Elder Eumenius. He spent the last two years of his life in the "Evangelismos" Hospital and on May 23, 1999 he surrendered his spirit to the Lord and was buried, according to his wish, in the place where he was born (in Ethia).
