St. Sophrony

Holy monks should be venerated. But I have to ask, given certain developments within Greek Orthodoxy in the US -- do the Greeks have a crisis of holiness among the laity? Has activism replaced holiness? Who was the last lay person recognized as being worth of veneration by the Greeks? Are the monastics all they have? (And not even their "secular" clery, including their bishops who were once monastic, qualify?)
