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. ^ "It is possible that this St Dometius is the same as St Dometius the Persian who is commemorated on August 7 with his two disciples."[9]
  3. ^ He was with St Cyprian in his exile, at his trial and execution, and wrote his Life.
  4. ^ A monk in Kilmanagh in Ireland. Having founded a monastery, probably in Enniscorthy, he is said to have visited Rome and on his way home stayed with St David in Wales. On his return to Ireland he founded more churches and monasteries, notably one in Iniscarra near Cork. Finally he settled on Scattery Island in the Shannon estuary where he was buried.
  5. ^ "ST. FELIX was a native of Burgundy, and was already consecrated Bishop, when his zeal for the spread of the Faith brought him to England, that he might share in the work of the conversion of our ancestors. He explained his wish to St. Honorius, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and was advised by him to betake himself to East Anglia, where the pious King St. Sigebert was labouring for the conversion of his people. The Saint established his See at Dunwich, in Suffolk, and forthwith began his apostolic work. So great was the success with which God favoured him that, after an episcopate of seventeen years, when he was called to the reward of his labours, the whole province was found to be Christian. St. Felix was buried at Dunwich, but afterwards translated to Seham, near Ely, and finally, many years later, to Ramsey Abbey."[18]
  6. ^ A monk at Agali in Spain under St Eugene, whom he succeeded first as Abbot and in 680 as Archbishop of Toledo. He was the first Metropolitan of All Iberia. Presiding over several national Councils, revising and developing the Mozarabic liturgy, he was a prolific writer and outstanding churchman.
  7. ^ He was a source of strength and comfort to the people during the Norman invasion. He kept the feast of the Dormition with special splendour.
  8. ^ This is a copy of the famous “Kursk Root” Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos commemorated on November 27.[26]
