Venerable Gerasimus the New Ascetic of Cephalonia
We pray to The Venerable Gerasimus to intercede before the Lord to strengthen and heal our brothers and sisters in Christ, who live with mental illness.
Let us praise divine Gerasimos the protector and champion of Orthodoxy, / An angel in the flesh and a God-inspired wonder-worker. / He received from God the gift of healing / And grants cures to those who honor him!
