The holy, glorious and right-victorious New Hieromartyr and Equal-to-the-Apostles Kosmas Aitolos, also called Patro-Kosmas, is one of the most significant personali-ties of the Church of our times.He influenced the faithful in ex-ceptionally many ways.His teachings were immediately put into practice.Albeit he was canonized a Saint of the Orthodox Church as late as in the year 1961 by the Ecumen-ical Patriarch, there were churches built and holy icons of him painted right after his martyrdom. A holy monastery was built at the place of his ex-ecution, in the Greek city of Kolkondas, presently part of Albania.We commemorate him on August 24, as it was on that day that he was martyred in the year 1779. He is called Aitolos because he was born in the Greek region of Aitolia, in the village of Mega Dendron.
