Orthodox Clergy Seek Virtual Saint!

Check out the hat.

“[T]he Orthodox clergy says, with the increasing use of computers in daily life, the time has come to designate an Orthodox Church saint to serve as spiritual guide to internet users.

A few years ago, the Roman Catholic Church nominated a patron saint for the internet – St Isidore, the Bishop of Seville.

However, the Vatican’s decisions hold no sway for Russian Orthodox believers, and the choice for them has been narrowed down to two contenders: Saint John Chrysostom, and Saint Feofan the Hermit.”

I think the “Hermit” thing might be a dig.
