Has anyone visited the Joy of All Who Sorrow Cathedral in San Francisco?  I am going to be in the area and was wanting to visit and perhaps venerate the relics of St. John of San Francisco.

I have been there last spring. The church is beautiful. When you enter the church, his relics are to the right. You will be blessed.

Troparion - Tone 1:
O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!

If you get a chance, just north is Fort Ross State Park, the colony served by St. Innocent during his when he was in California.  A very fine site, with an excellent museum.  Closer, on the top of Russian Hill, is a commemoration of the old Russian cemetary found by the first Americans coming to San Francisco.  Near to there is Holy Trinity, St. Tikhon's Cathedral.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I live in the Bay Area so I'll probably stop by.
