In June of 2009 the Holy Synod of the Alexandrian Patriarchate declared Hieromartyr Cyril Lukaris (Kyrillos Loukaris) a Saint of the Orthodox Church. His memory is celebrated annually on June 27th. On 27 June 2011 Patriarch Theodoros of Alexandria and All Africa celebrated the Divine Liturgy in his honor at the Patriarchal Church of Saint Savvas the Sanctified in Alexandria.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

Thank you so much for providing the information I was lacking.  I hope that some good Orthodox scholar writes a paper on this in English  and submits its to a scholary journal like "Church History" for example.
