This holy ascetic, newly glorified in 2011, was born Sophia Saoulidi in 1883 in the village of Trebizond in present day Turkey. In 1907, she married Jordan Hortokoridou. Seven years later, her husband disappeared under mysterious circumstances during a period of increased Moslem anti Christian strife. Sophia was left to care for their newborn son. Not long afterward her beloved only son also died. Turning from the world, she placed all her trust in God, spending her time in solitary prayer on a mountain near her town.
In 1919 she arrived in Greece as part of the “exchange of populations” between Turkey and Greece.
