    Hi :wave:

    I am wondering if the Orthodox Church has a patron Saint for fixing things, or repairing things? I looked around on the net but could not find any information. Thanks!

    Too bad Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman aren't Orthodox, or in a hundred years or so, we might have a couple of Saints of Free Software? (Unmercenaries?) ;)

    It's funny you mention Linux because I'm starting a PC business and I cannot think of a name. This is why I was wondering if there was a Patron Saint of repair.

    Hmmm...a "PC" business. Does that mean computers or that you plan to try not to offend anyone, ever?

    I'm not a big fan of blind "patronage". Read the lives of the saints. Get to know them. Then if a certain saint comes to mind in a certain situation based that relationship, that is one thing. Creating "a list" for people who don't know anything else about that saint is another. Just my 2 cents...

    Good point. I have decided on a name that is non-Saint related, which I think is for the best. Thank you everyone for your input.

    My company is called Eikona IT Services.

    Years ago, I was going to start a company, Extol Data Networking. That one never got started though.

    St. John of San Francisco has always come to my aid whenever my computer or computer-run appliances give me grief.

    France? We'll then he's neither Catholic or Orthodox!

    French are kind of... unique. I used to room with a French guy...nice guy, we bonded quite a bit, we both hate Protestants. :p
