Heavenly Friends


St. James the Brother of God, first Bishop of Jerusalem, and patron of the first Orthodox Church I visited regularly


St. John the Baptist and Forerunner of Christ. I helped build a little chapel dedicated to the Feast of his Beheading, commemorated August 29.


St. Gerasimos of Kephalonia, whose relics I venerated and whose church I happened upon while in Athens


St. Elijah the Prophet, patron of my little godson Elias


St. Joseph the Old Testament Patriarch, patron of my godson Joseph


St. Demetrius of Thessaloniki, whom I venerated on pilgrimage to Greece in March

Great to hear from you again.

I hope to be able to take a pilgrimage one day, God willing.

And I haven't heard of St. Gerasimos before: off to read about him.

Rejoice, O Virgin Mother of God, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, for thou hast born the Savior of our souls.
