I just completed a small book on the life of St. Spyridon of Tremithus by St. John of Kronstadt Press.  It was a good book.  I knew very little of the saint before reading it and I was very impressed by his life and accomplishments.  Some of the miracles that occurred after his death were remarkable.

Newport, RI,  great town.  When I was in the Navy I had two assignments at the naval base there, one for 8 months and the other for 18 months.  

Sorry, put this topic in the wrong room.  Should be under Reviews rather than Christian News.

That was when Fr. Peter Balkas was the priest at St. Spyridon's...he only brought St. Spyridon's slipper out in the glass case to be venerated on the Feast of St. Spyridon....our new priest takes it out of the case to be venerated.

This last Vespers of St. Spyridon we were doubly blessed...one of the visiting priests from CT brought a vial of myrhh which flowed from an icon of St. Nicholas and annointed everyone before they venerated St. Spyridon's slipper.
