Latest COVID-19 Resources from Metropolis of Chicago
For centuries Orthodox Christians have turned their prayers to Saints Kosmas and Damianos the physicians and to Saint Panteleimon for the healing of illnesses. They are also known as the protectors of doctors and medical professionals. In this time of need may we ask for their intercessions to overcome this pandemic and may we ask them to give strength to all medical professionals who bravely battle in the trenches to save lives!
