Saints glorification

How many saints were glorified by particular Churches? How many of them - in the modern era?

The Macedonian Orthodox Church canonized these saints last year:



Venerable Martyrs Paisius, Evnuvius, Avercius of Prechista (Prechista is a monastery dedicated to the Presentation of Mary to the Temple).

The most interesting thing is that the hymn was written from a hymographer from the Patriarchate of Constantinople, although we are not in communion.

And:

40 Holy martyrs of Bitola:


Parts of their lives (in Macedonian):

All cannonized martyrs are from the period when Macedonia was under Turkish rule.

St Nikiphoros the Leper of Chios (1887-1964) was glorified by the Church of Greece on January 4 this year.

There are also the multitude of New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia, the Butovo Martyrs, St Justin of Celije, New-martyr Maria of Paris and Ravensbruck and those with her,  St Nikolai of Zicha .....

Maybe you could have asked it more clearly?

As for the Armenian Church, there has not been a new saint recognized in our church for over five hundred years.
