Agios Gerasimos

Today was the festival of Saint Gerasimos.  The small church of Agios Gerasimos is on top of a hill, which overlooks the island town of Ermioni.  The views from this church are truly spectacular. Saint Gerasimos was born in 1503 in Trikala, Thessaly.  He was ordained a monk at Mount Athos, then went to Jerusalem, where he lived for 12 years.    He died 15 August 1579, and in 1622 he was made a Saint.
