Have any Orthodox missionaries talked about Sasquatch, especially in the Pacific North West?
If you will, you can become all flame.

Probably not anymore than they speak of the Easter Bunny or the Good Tooth Fairy.

It's purported that St. Innocent tamed one but that it "flipped out" (not my words), running off screaming when it saw an icon of St. Christopher the Dog-Face.  I didn't read the whole story... I dunno... something about they can't tolerate dogs.

That is so awesome that my patron intimidates even Bigfoot!

Just another reason why St. Christopher is (arguably) the third greatest saint in all of Christianity!

LOL!  That's great! 
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
