:The Ven. Bede is a great choice. I thought about him, but I'm worried that he's not identifiably Orthodox enough. Of course, we can always ask for his intercessions in any case!
:I like the idea of St. Nikodemos too. He would certainly be an appropriate choice, although I'm worried about the connotations people have with him being a canonist. It might be seen as too polemical by some. [[User:FrJohn|Fr. John]] 13:50, November 12, 2005 (CST)
::''O champion of Orthodoxy, teacher of purity and of true worship, The enlightener of the universe and the adornment of the hierarchs: O all-wise father John, your teachings have gleamed with light upon all things. Intercede before Christ our God to save our souls!'' (Troparion)
