Menaion - 4 March


On 4 March, we commemorate our venerable father Gerasimos, the Jordanite.

A wild beast had the honor of serving Gerasimos, who had tamed all his passions as though they were wild beasts. On the fourth, he took flight; and thus today we are able to praise this summit of the ascetics.

By his holy prayers, O our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
