On Spruce Island: A Saint in the Wilderness
“For our own good, our own happiness, let us at least give ourselves a promise that from this day, from this hour, from this minute, we will now try to love God most of all and to fulfill His holy will!” — St Herman of Alaska
Today’s reading about St Herman’s time on Spruce Island is taken from:
Herman, A Wilderness Saint: From Sarov, Russia to Kodiak, Alaska
