Deacon Philip Gilbert † May 29, 1997

 Paramedic, Deacon, lover of God.

Our Lady of Cicero

An accident that occurred during his duties as a paramedic resulted in paralysis. The following account is about him. There is a very touching account of his return to St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Cicero, Illinois (where the miraculous weeping icon “Our Lady of Cicero” is located) after the accident. Its a truly inspirational story, an inspirational life.

As our goal is to reflect our Lord Jesus Christ, the Cross, in its various forms designed for each of us, will be borne. And as we know from our liturgical life, “through the Cross joy has come into all the world.”  For following the faithful bearing of the Cross is resurrection and ascension to the glorious presence of God.
