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. ^ "His popularity in Ukraine and elsewhere was due to his Gospel and the belief that he was taken bodily into heaven upon his repose. On this day, worshippers at the site of his tomb at Ephesus are enveloped with bright particles that rise in the air as a result of a gentle breeze and these particles are miracle-working. On the island of Patmos where St John wrote the Book of Revelation, there is enshrined the Kozak martyr, St Pachomius."[3]
  3. ^ Bishop Laurence of Siponto (called Majoranus), was Bishop of Siponto in Italy from 492. He built the church of St Michael on Mt Gargano. He is commemorated on February 7 († 546).[19]
  4. ^ The Sanctuary of Monte Sant'Angelo is the oldest shrine in Western Europe dedicated to the archangel Michael and has been an important pilgrimage site since the middle ages. The historic site and its environs are protected by the Parco Nazionale del Gargano. In 2011, it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of a group of seven, inscribed as Longobards in Italy. Places of the power (568-774 A.D.).
  5. ^ (Elder Michael I The Confessor, 1871-1934). An outstanding monastery spiritual director and a leading father during the height of Valaam's blossoming. Elder Michael showed his integrity and genuineness when trouble struck in the twenties, with the forced installation of the Western secular calendar into Church life, which had not changed since ancient Byzantine times. He became a stalwart confessor of ecclesiastical firmness to the end and died as a hero in battle after being tormented by years of banishment, exile and mockery. Fr. Michael came to Valaam at a young age and his two brothers followed him, one a poet, and the other a musician, and they became outstanding monks. After visiting the Holy Land, Mt. Athos, Optina, and other centers of living Orthodoxy, Fr. Michael was able to widen his spiritual vision. He became a God bearing Elder and enabled his monks to be zealots for Orthodoxy at a time when apostasy began to encroach upon the Orthodox Church from within. In this sense, he became a carrier of the apostolic gift of Prophecy as is spoken of by St. Paul. A man ahead of his time, he is a guiding light for us and for Russia today.[23]
