Where Saint Sophia of Kleisoura Lived in Asceticism (video)

The Holy Metropolis of Kastoria has released a video which shows where the newly-glorified Saint Sophia of Kleisoura lived in asceticism, including the fireplace in which she lived for 47 years at the Monastery of the Panagia in Kleisoura.

It also invites us to the first feast of the Saint and her canonization, at which Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew will be present, between 30 June and 3 July 2012.

One can also hear the Saint speak, encouraging the faithful to have fear of God so nothing can happen to us.
