Aparent ilogice şi de necrezut, aceste minuni (doar câteva sunt citate mai sus) trebuie interpretate într-o cheie mai subtilă, dată de apropierea care s-a făcut între numele său şi cuvântul latinesc... <span style="font-style:italic;">spiritus</span>. Majoritatea acestor minuni (exceptând-o pe cea de la Niceea) vorbesc de la sine despre puterea discernământului, despre dreapta socoteală şi despre cumpătare. În privinţa minunii de la Niceea, când, luând în mână celebra lui cărămidă, a scos în evidenţă cele trei elemente care o compun (pământul, apa şi focul), această minune era destinată înţelegerii consubstanţialităţii celor Trei Persoane Treimice - Tatăl, Fiul şi Duhul Sfânt.
Departure and relics==[[ Image: Spyridon slippers.jpg| right| thumb|300px| One of the pairs of St. Spyridon's slippers, housed at the cathedral dedicated to him in Worcester, Massachusetts]] St. Spyridon lived most of his earthly life in Cyprus, where he also reposed in 348 AD and was buried in the Church of the Holy Apostles in Trimythous.
When the Saracens took the island, the Cypriots opened his grave in order to remove his sacred bones to Constantinople. They found that his body had remained intact, while from the grave emanated a scent of basil, true signs of the sainthood he had shown during his lifetime. When Constantinople fell in 1453, he was transferred to Serbia, then a Corfiot elder, Georgios Kalohairetis, brought him to the island of Corfu in Greece where he is currently buried.
To this day St. Spyridon's incorrupt [[ relics]] at his shrine in Corfu continue to manifest the power of God, wondrous in His saints. He is called the " walking [[ saint]]" because the silk slippers which clothe the feet of his relics wear out each year and are replaced on his [[ feast day]]. He is commemorated by the Church on [[12 decembrie]]. His Miracle in Corfu against the Turkish invasion of 1716 is commemorated on [[11 august]].
