St. John Maximovitch the Wonder Worker

To celebrate I listened to some of the

podcasts on him

from Ancient Faith Radio.

Really lovely to listen to,

all about him from a subdeacon who

was a young Altar Boy when

St. John was in Sans Fransisco.

Here they are:


Yesterday I stayed home

away from the crowds and noise

of Canada Day

and rested and read all about

whose work at Abbot and as Librarian

endeared him quickly to my heart.


Slowly I am feeling more myself again;

today was the last day of the medicine.

Still recovering but the corner has turned.


Wonderful that today is St. John's day.

Wonderful that there are Saints in the world

to help us.
