Joyous Feast!

St John is most dear to those of us who live, move, and have our being in a Western Orthodox context!

His Feast falls concurrent with a major Western Feast, however, i.e. the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (to St Elizabeth), so it only rates a "commemoration."

But we attended Divine Liturgy this a.m. at an OCA parish, so we got to celebrate him anyway!

St John the Wonderworker, pray for us!

As a longtime fan of John Malkovich's, I'm thrilled to see him honored by people outside his usual fan base.
