He was born on 1897 in the village Leukes in the island of Paros, in a poor family. His father died when Joseph was still very young. He lived with his mother in the village until the age of 23, when he moved to Athens. In 1921 he went to Mount Athos and lived there the rest of his life, like the old aschets of the desert, practicing severe fasting and spiritual struggle. He died in 1959.
