  1. Memory eternal! I loved him but he could make it very difficult to be his friend. Sometimes I wanted to hug him and sometimes I wanted to punch him in the nose. But, I never doubted his faith and love for his parishoners and god. I was always impressed by the loyalty and the spirit of the members of St. John the wonderworker.

    1. One thing that impressed me about Father Jacob is that while he could be gruff and outspoken, he would ask forgiveness when he stepped on my toes. I loved and respected that. To me, he was a pioneer of sorts: with Orthodoxy in the South and with his homeless ministry.

  2. I love the way you compared the eyes of the children with the eyes of St Justin and then related that to our eyes. So true- when we look at Christ, we’re more able to let His love flow through us- like Father Jacob did so often for me.
