Wisdom of the Church Fathers and the Monastic Life
St. Gregory PalamasSt. Gregory Palamas
Having put your hope in Christ who provides for all creation and nurtures it, keep away from all unjust gains, and do not be too attached even to honest income. Put it to good use and let the poor share in it as much as possible.

Orthodox Tidbits — St. Gerasimos

Christ the Teacher by Monastery Icons
On flights to Greece, the jet pilots usually announce the approach to the Greek mainland by pointing out below the sparkling Ionian waters and the jewel-like island of Kephalonia. It is much more than a landmark. It is something more than its beautiful sister islands that surround the mainland. The very special reason is that its ground is the final resting place of St. Gerasimos, a saint whose body has miraculously remained in a state of preservation for nearly 400 years.

Gerasimos was more than an unusual man. Despite his intense desire to serve Jesus Christ in as many places and in as many ways as possible, he turned out to be quite a private person.
