Orthodox Tidbits St. Gerasimos
On flights to Greece, the jet pilots usually announce the approach to the Greek mainland by pointing

special reason is that its ground is the final resting place of St. Gerasimos, a saint whose body has
miraculously remained in a state of preservation for nearly 400 years.

places and in as many ways as possible, he turned out to be quite a private person.
