Was St John of SF a diabetic ?

Post by Barbara »

This video is of an impromptu talk given by Rocor-MP Archpriest Sergei Kotar at the door of the crypt where St John Maximovitch was originally buried after his repose in 1966.

This crypt, by the way, is the very site of the historic opening of the Saint's relics on October 11-12, 1993. Thus, this year, as many are aware, is the 25th anniversary of that momentous occasion.

While some of the narration is of usual facts, there are a few surprises. These include much more detail about the permission to bury St John under the Holy Virgin Cathedral than I had ever heard.

So it's worth listening to the entire 32 minute talk by a long time Joy of All Who Sorrow Cathedral Priest :

A number of clips from the Vigil and Liturgy for that 25th Anniversary of St John's Glorification are available at the link below for those who would like to hear the Holy Virgin Cathedral Choir and see the relics of St John out in the center of the Cathedral.

Remarkably, this year the St John's Day Liturgy fell on the Vigil of the Sunday of All Saints of Russia - how extremely appropriate !
