Spiritual Fathers

  1. 1. SPIRITUAL FATHERS Pavlina Paschalidou C’4
  2. 2. MEANING  Many Christians apart from their natural father, have a spiritual father as well, who teaches them how to live their lives with Christ and directs them into the path of spiritual salvation.
  3. 3. MODERN SPIRITUAL FATHERS  Nowadays, the greatest Spiritual Fathers live in Mount Athos which is part of the Chalcidice Peninsula and which we Orthodox call “The Holy Mountain”.
  4. 4.  Some of the greatest Spiritual Fathers are:  Father Paisios (1924 – 1994)  Father Porfirios (1906 - 1991)  Father Filotheos Zervakos (1884 – 1980)  Father Ieronimos of Aegina (1883 – 1966)
  5. 5. MIRACLES  Father Paisios after his death also helped people. He was sometimes appearing to sick people or their close relatives to give them advice (e.g. not to do a surgery).  They make prophecies about the future.  They maybe see you for the first time and they will know who you are and if you have a problem what is it.
