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. ^ On this day we also celebrate the translation to Constantinople of the holy right hand of St John the Forerunner (956 AD).[3] The holy Evangelist Luke, who went preaching Christ in various cities and towns, came to Sebaste, where they gave him the right hand of the holy Prophet John, the very hand with which he had baptized the Savior. The Evangelist Luke took it with him to his native city of Antioch.[4] There, many miracles subsequently took place. It is said that during the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the Bishop also elevated the holy relic; sometimes the relic became extended and sometimes it became contracted; when it was extended it signified a fertile harvest, however when it contracted it signified deprivation and poverty.[3] When the Moslems seized Antioch centuries later, a Deacon named Job brought the holy hand of the Forerunner from Antioch to Chalcedon. From there, on the eve of the Theophany of the Lord, it was transferred to Constantinople (956 AD) and kept thereafter.[4]
  3. ^ The Bishop of Athens ordained Julian as Deacon. Adorned with the grace of the holy order, he went forth along with the Priest Julius to preach the Gospel and baptized many. At the end of his life he departed for Gozzano near Lake Maggiore, where he practiced asceticism and prayer, and reposed peacefully in the year 391 AD.
  4. ^ He reposed in Mais in the Tyrol in Austria. Some years later his relics were translated to Trent and then to Passau.
  5. ^ Born in Wales, he crossed to Devon in England and founded a monastery in Braunton.[6]
  6. ^ Born in Saxony in Germany, he was abducted by robbers and enslaved. Freed by St Eligius of Noyon, he became a monk at Solignac and enlightened the area around Tournai and Courtrai in Belgium.
  7. ^ Daughter of Kelly, prince of Leinster and mother of St Coellan. After her husband's death she left Ireland and became an Anchoress on the island of Inchebroida on Loch Lomond in Scotland, where a church is dedicated to her.
  8. ^ A noble from Westphalia in Germany, he was converted by a vision and baptised in 785. He was zealous in spreading Christianity and restoring churches.
  9. ^ He was killed by stonemasons who threw his body into a pool near the Rhine. It was later found by divine revelation.
  10. ^ He began building the Cathedral and greatly helped the monks of Saint-Pierre-le-Vif, in whose church he was buried.
  11. ^ In Russian documents he is sometimes called blessed (Russian: Блаженный).
