Saint Spyridon - Aged Byzantine Icon
Iconographer: Sister Siippi
Commemorates on: December 12
Spyridon, the God-bearing Father of the Church, the great defender of Corfu and the boast of all the Orthodox, had Cyprus as his homeland. He was simple in manner and humble of heart. When he was joined to a wife, he begat of her a daughter whom they named Irene. After his wifes departure from this life, he was appointed Bishop of Trimythus. When the First Ecumenical Council was assembled in Nicaea, he also was present, and by means of his most simple words stopped the mouths of the Arians who were wise in their own conceit. By the divine grace which dwelt in him, he wrought such great wonders that he received the surname Wonderworker. So it is that, having tended his flock piously and in a manner pleasing to God, he imposed in the Lord about the year 350, leaving to his country his sacred relics as a consolation and source of healing for the faithful.

I received the icons yesterday. They are beautiful (as I had no doubt they would be). Thanks again for everything.
