Saint Spyridon the Wonderworker and Bishop of Tremithus
We call upon Saint Spyridon to intercede before the Lord that He may deliver us from diseases of the ears.
Below, is an account of Saint Spyridon’s wonderworking miracle of hearing:

Saint Spyridon went into an empty church, and ordered that the lampadas and candles be lit, and then he began the service. When he said, “Peace be unto all,” both he and the deacon heard from above the resounding of “a great multitude of voices saying, “And with thy spirit.” This choir was majestic and more sweetly melodious than any human choir. To each petition of the litanies, the invisible choir sang, “Lord, have mercy.” Attracted by the church singing, the people who lived nearby hastened towards it. As they got closer and closer to the church, the wondrous singing filled their ears and gladdened their hearts. But when they entered into the church, they saw no one but the bishop and several church servers, and they no longer heard the singing which had greatly astonished them.”(oca.org)
