  2. ^ The Troparion of the Forefeast invites us to gather on this day in gladness, for the Theotokos is about to depart from earth to heaven.[4]
  3. ^ "In Dalmatia, St. Ursicius, a martyr, who was beheaded for Christ, after suffering various torments, under the emperor Maximian, and the governor Aristides."[9]
  4. ^ "At Apamea, in Syria, St. Marcellus, bishop and martyr, who was killed by the exasperated Gentiles, for having pulled down a temple of Jupiter."[9]
  5. ^ "At Rome, the birthday of the blessed priest Eusebius, who for the defense of the Catholic faith was shut up in a room of his own house by the Arian emperor Constantius, where constantly persevering in prayer for seven months, he rested in peace. His body was removed by the priests Gregory and Orosius, and buried in the cemetery of Callistus, on the Appian road."[9]
  6. ^ "WERENFRID was one of the numerous English men who devoted themselves to the conversion of the kindred race of the Old Saxons on the Continent. He is usually supposed to have been one of St. Willibrord's first companions, and to have sailed with him from Ireland at the bidding of St. Egbert, but his life leaves it doubtful whether he actually accompanied the great missioner, or followed him some years later. After various employments among the Frisians, Werenfrid was sent by St. Willibrord to the isle of Batavia, which had been given to him by Charles Martel, and established himself at Elst. There he built a church, and exercised a fruitful mission, until, urged by his zeal, he proceeded to Westervoost, near Arnheim, and while labouring there was seized with a fever, which he foretold would be the end of his earthly course. He gave up his soul to God with singular piety, and assisted by the religious men whom he called together. A heavenly odour pervaded the place of his death and the neighbourhood, inspiring all with sentiments of devotion and veneration for the servant of God. A dispute arose between the inhabitants of Westervoost and Elst for the honour of possessing his sacred remains, which was terminated by a miracle, through which the Saint clearly indicated that Elst was to be the place of his repose. There his relics were duly honoured, until they were profaned by the heretics in the year 1588; after which sacrilege the ashes and fragments, which could be collected, were reverently preserved by the faithful."[15]
  7. ^ Born in Swabia in Germany, he became a monk and then the first Abbot of Einsiedeln in Switzerland.
  8. ^ Abbot (996-1006) of Pannonhalma in Hungary and then second Archbishop of Eszterzom and primate of Hungary.

  10. ^ "Without an investigation, the Troika (a Soviet extraordinary council of three judges) sentenced to death Metropolitan Nazarius and four other clergymen—Priest Herman Jajanidze, Priest Hierotheos Nikoladze, Priest Simon Mchedlidze, and Archdeacon Besarion Kukhianidze. They were shot to death in the Sapichkhia Forest. In 1994, with the blessing of Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II, the full Ecclesiastical Council of the Georgian Church resolved with one accord to canonize Metropolitan Nazarius and the clergymen who were martyred with him. At the same time, the council canonized all the Orthodox Christians who, for their Faith and the independence of their homeland, became victims of the totalitarian regime. They were proclaimed the "New Martyrs of the Georgian Church." "[18]
  11. ^ On this day the True Cross was put away once again, having been set out from the end of July or the start of August for the veneration of the faithful.[20]
