Archimandrite Angelos Lyssaris, A Descendent of Kolokotronis, Reposes

September 25, 2010

Today, Saturday 25 September 2010, Archimandrite Angelos Lyssaris, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of the Annunciation in Skiathos, an important center of the Kollyvades Fathers, has reposed.

It is worth noting that the Blessed Abbot Angelos Lyssaris was a third generation descendent of the Arch-General of the Revolution of 1821, Theodoros Kolokotronis.

Fr. Angelos Lyssaris was originally from Limbovisi in the mountains of Arcadia (where also Kolokotronis was from), and according to tradition, at the Monastery of the Annunciation the first Greek flag with the white cross in the middle was stitched, blessed and raised in 1807.

Lastly, the Blessed Abbot was the priest chosen by Free Agia Sofia of Greek-American Chris Spyrou to liturgize in Hagia Sophia.
