Saint Spyridon (270 - 368 A.D.) was a simple shepherd from Cyprus who had no formal education. He memorized the Bible, however, and became a bishop who attended the First Ecumenical Council. Many miracles have been attributed to him, including healing the Emperor Constantine. A patron saint of illness, it is believed that he often leaves the church at night to perform miracles for those who invoke his name. It is said that the shoes by his casket are periodically worn out from his travels and have to be changed each year. He died in the mid fourth century.
Relics: St.Spyridon Cathedral, Kerkyra, Corfu. Casket opened by special request, and pieces of his slippers may be purchased.
