Keeping a candle lit for a dear friend's
father who is very ill overseas.
St. Necktarios is a healer and I pray that his
intercessions will comfort my friend and
her family during this time.
Today (old calendar) is
St. George's Day.
The icon below is one my beloved St. George icons;
it is the one that a few lents ago was in
the Altar of my church for all of lent.
That was such a blessing;
I loved seeing him there,
leaning against the window.
I felt so protected that lent,
knowing he was there.
Now this icon is home with me
and since it was his day,
I put this icon out on display,
even though my big icon of him
has a lampada by it.
St. George is such a beloved Saint!
I went to friends' church for a service
to St. George
and then had the friends over for dinner
We had a simple tomato-vegetable soup,
a salad and some fried potatoes.
And various fun desserts.
A wonderful way to celebrate
the feast day of St. George!
