St. Gerasimos was born in Trikala, of the Corinthian eparchy in 1506.  His father, Demetrios, was from an aristocratic family in Constantinople.  St. Gerasimos was raised and educated as a member of the ruling class at that time. When he was 20 years old, he decided to go to Zakynthos (Zante), a great center of education in that period.

On October 18th, our Church honors the distinguished figure of St. Luke the Evangelist.  He was a Greek from the Great city of Antioch in Syria (today’s Antakya).

The feast of the Holy Protection of the All Holy Theotokos is known throughout the Orthodox world.

In today’s passage from St. Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians, the Holy Apostle reveals to us in an exemplary way (including from his own life) how beneficial the power of God Almighty is.

To understand what St. Paul is talking about in today’s reading, we have to remember that in his previous Epistle to the Corinthians, the Holy Apostle severely rebuked the Christians of that community for their bad conduct.
