In response to the numerous prayer requests for those facing surgery, we are pleased to offer this Akathist to St. Luke, the Blessed Surgeon. St. Luke of Simferopol - the renowned surgeon and revered hierarch of the Church - was a true father, shepherd and healer for the faithful through decades of Communist persecution. His grace-filled skill as a surgeon, even in the worst conditions, brought healing to countless people wherever he was -- whether in one of the great hospitals or in exile, operating on a wooden table with only a pocket knife. Miracles still abound through the grace of his intercession, and thousands flock to his holy relics. This pocket-sized, user-friendly edition is printed on glossy paper, just as the others in the series. Both cover and inner pages are in full color, including two icons of the saint.
Full-color cover and inner pages, abundantly illustrated.
A simple but informative account of the life of St. Paisius Velichkovsky. 8 pages, stapled.
