Elder Paisios of Mount Athos.
The Blessed Elder Paisios, whose name in the world was Arsenios Eznepides, was born in the village of Pharasa of Cappadocia on 25 July 1924. Shortly before his family left for Greece with the (forced) Exchange of Populations in 1924, the Elder was baptised by Saint Arsenios the Cappadocian, who gave him his own name, and foretold that he was leaving a (future) monk in his place. Upon arriving in Greece, his family settled in the village of Konitsa, Epeirus, where the Elder spent his childhood and young adult years (from the book).
