Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The notation Old Style or (OS) is sometimes used to indicate a date in the Julian Calendar (which is used by churches on the "Old Calendar").
    The notation New Style or (NS), indicates a date in the Revised Julian calendar (which is used by churches on the "New Calendar").
  2. ^ Venerable Salome, along with St. Perozhavra of Sivnia, a noblewoman who was married to the ruler of the Kartli region, were the helpers and closest companions of Saint Nino, Equal-to-the-Apostles and Enlightener of Georgia (335).
  3. ^ The Venerable Saint Alexander was essentially the founder of the Monastery of the Unsleeping Ones ("the Ever-Vigilant" - Grk: Μονὴ Ἀκοιμήτων). This is how the monks of the East were called, who lived communally and were divided into groups, commemorating God in succession perpetually throughout the day and night, so that unceasing prayer would never cease in their monastery. See also: December 29 for another Saint commemorated from this monastery - Venerable Marcellus, Abbot of the Monastery of the Unsleeping Ones ("the Ever-Vigilant"),(485).
  4. ^ "At Anagni, St. Secundina, virgin and martyr, who suffered under the emperor Decius."[16]
  5. ^ "At Cagliari, in Sardinia, St. Ephisius, martyr, who, in the persecution of Diocletian and under the judge Flavian, having, by the assistance of God, overcome many torments, was beheaded and ascended to heaven."[16]
  6. ^ He ordained St Felix. During the persecution of Decius he fled to the mountains, where he nearly died of exposure and hunger. He reposed in Nola worn out by the hardships he had endured for the Faith.
  7. ^ "In the diocese of Angers, St. Maur, abbot and disciple of St. Benedict. He made great progress with so able a master, for while he was still under the Saint's instruction he miraculously walked upon the water - a prodigy unheard of since the days of St. Peter. Sent later to France by St. Benedict, he built a famous monastery, which he governed for forty years, and after performing striking miracles, he rested in peace.[16]
  8. ^ St Bede dedicated his Ecclesiastical History to him. He ended his days as a monk at Lindisfarne.
  9. ^ "The fervent piety of Ceolwulf led him to seek the means of greater perfection in the religious state, and after governing his people a few years, he took refuge at Lindisfarne. There he led a holy life for many years, an example of true contempt for the vanities of the world. Eventually his relics were taken to the Church of Norham, and the translation was marked by many miracles."[19]
