Batyushka Gerasim of Spruce Island
- Speaking of St. Hermans Spruce Island, is not the
grave of the pius elder Gerasim Schmaltz located
there? Does anyone know if this blessed man will one
day be canonized by the church for his ascetic labors.
Also, to which jurisdiction did he belong to? All the
info I've read about him has been from the St. Hermans
brotherhood and they have made this a rather vague
detail. I think he was given an OCA funeral when he
died in 1969, but that was before ROCOR placed them
under interdict, I believe.
I would appreciate any help for this? N. R. Kearney
