Holy St. John, pray to God for us.
Is this St. John of Krondstadt, or a different St. John?
A different St. John. St. John of Kronstadt lived in, well, Kronstadt. St. John the Wonderworker lived in Shanghai and San Francisco. St. John of Kronstadt reposed around 1911. St. John the Wonderworker reposed in 1966. St. John of Kronstadt was a parish priest. St. John the Wonderworker was an archbishop.There is an icon of St. John the Wonderworker in my office. I keep it here because he disapproved of two bad habits of mine: opening letters with your fingers, and licking the envelopes closed. I bought two letter openers, one for the office and one for the living room (where I sometimes open mail), and a whole bunch of little bottles of envelope-sealant, just so St. John wouldn't be offended at seeing me working in my office. ;-)Holy Vladyka John, pray to God for us!
