I'm glad. But I cannot understand how could Saint Nikephoros the Leper be canonized, but the canonization of Elder Joseph the Hesychast who is quite more famous and who reposed five years earlier than Saint Nikephoros is still in process...:l. Does somebody know how the ecumenical patriarchate choose the priority??
God doesn't go by how famous a person is. Sometimes, someone humble who hardly anyone has ever heard of could be a greater saint than another saint, more well known.
That having been said, (St) Joseph the Hesychast was also well known for his humility. I doubt he'd begrudge a leper monk being glorified first. :-)
