Prayer to St Herman of Alaska
By Matushka Juliana Schmemann
St Herman, please protect our Church: restore the peace, the purity, the love for the Lord, and for each other, that is shadowed now, and is tempting our people.
You, great Saint, who planted firmly in America the Cross of Christ: come back to us, and see to it that we have not shaken that Cross, which you firmly planted. Make it firm again; give us the truth, the light, and the trust, which is shaken.
Please, great Saint, intercede for us. We are weak, and guilty. We need the Lord to help us up, and forgive us; and we must become truly humble, but DARING, and courageous, fully admit our wrongs, and repent.

With love in Christ, I remain,
