The Story Behind This Icon:

This icon is an exact replica of the icon of Saint Spyridon’s life and miracles, which was made in 1671, and is held in the Benaki Museum in Athens, Greece. Saint Spyridon the Bishop is pictured enthroned in the center of the icon.To the left, one can see the miracle of the King Constantine’s healing in three stages: the king’s sleep, his thanksgiving, and the baptism of the unbelievers. One can also see many other miracles of Saint Spyridon around the icon. For example, the transformation of a serpent into gold is depicted at the top of the icon, as well as the reversal of the river’s flow at the bottom. On the bottom left, Saint Spyridon is seen praying to God near the idols, making them collapse. His accepted prayer asking for rain can also be seen on the lower part of the icon. Finally, the resurrection of his daughter Irene is found on the bottom right.

Saint Spyridon's feast day is commemorated on December 12.
