Today, Monday 27 November 2017, Elder Iakovos Tsalikes, who reposed in the Lord on 21 November 1991, was officially numbered among the saints by the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, on his patronal feast of Saint James (Iakovos) the Persian. Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew himself had visited the Venerable Iakovos Tsalikes at the Monastery of the Venerable David in Evia in February of 1989, and he told the then Metropolitan Bartholomew that one day he would become Patriarch. His annual feast will take place on November 22nd.

I feel bad for all the polemicists who can't use that clip of Pat. Bartholomew meeting St. Paisios, now.

It's something of a tradition now that patriarchs support the glorification of saints that predicted their eventual enthronement. It was reportedly the case with Patriarch Athenagoras and St. Nektarios, too. I sometimes wonder if it was God's way of raising a saint to glory who otherwise may not have been officially recognized.

If you manage to get me elected to a patriarchate, I will canonise you.
