So now I would like piously to share with you spiritually this information I have discovered after St. Lazarus left Bethany, and lived on the island of Cyprus, and who eventually became a Bishop of Kition, which is now called Larnaca. The Virgin Mary the Theotokos also visited St. Lazarus while he was on the island on Cyprus. This information is presented at the end of this web site.
The Orthodox Church in Cyprus was founded by St. Barnabas the Apostle in 46 A.D., and was under the Jurisdiction of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem up until 325, and then became Autocephalous in 413. The Episcopal Seat is under Archbishop Chrysostom II of New Justina and Cyprus. The following are four Metropolitans of the island of Cyprus: [[Georgios of Paphos]], [[Chrysostomos of Kition]], and [[Paulos of Kyrenia]] (occupied part, he is residing in Nicosia), and [[Athanasios of Limassol]].
