Happy Feast Day!

Tell Geronda in honor of your feast the board has decided that you should only do 100 metanyes! Grin

Vicki

Don't ask us for what, we are certain you did SOMETHING worthy of metanyes.

Sorry Vicki, niether Geronda was at the monastery yesterday (they were in Texas for Holy Archangels' feastday).  It was still a great blessing to be able to venerate the the holy relics of Saint Nektarios on his feastday and I stayed for the vigil to Saint Arsenios which was amazing.

For those that don't know, Saint Nektarios' body remained incorrupt for twenty years after his death. Every few years they opened his grave and found him looking as though he had just been buried. After twenty years though, when they again opened his grave, they found that his flesh had completely dissolved.

One particular woman was greatly distressed at this and wondered why his body could not have remained incorrupt. Saint Nektarios appeared to her in a dream and explained that it was his desire for his flesh to dissolve so that his relics could then be distributed around the world.
