Holy New Hieromartyr Ananias Lampardes, Metropolitan of Lacedaemon, Has Been Canonized by the Ecumenical Patriarchate

Today, June 14, 2022, together with Elder Bessarion of Agathonos, the Ecumenical Patriarchate approved the canonization of the Holy New Hieromartyr Ananias Lampardes, Metropolitan of Lacedaemon (+ 1764). He had been locally canonized in 2017 by Metropolitan Eustathios of Sparta, and at that time he submitted his name for approval from the Ecumenical Patriarchate for universal recognition. News of his official canonization was met with great joy in the Holy Metropolises of Monemvasia, Sparta, Gortynos and Megalopolis.
