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. ^ He is likened to Christ (i.e. the Nativity of Christ) in Church hymnography.[2]
  3. ^ "St. John lived a long life, dying at about the age of 100 (c. AD 98-108). Early Christians marveled at his longevity, and some thought he would not die before the return of Christ (John 21:22). John corrects this assumption by clarifying that Jesus did not say to him that he would not die".[7] He is the presumed author of the Gospel of John, 1, 2 and 3 John, and the Book of Revelation.
  4. ^ He became Bishop of Bologna in Italy in about 370. He was a close friend of St Ambrose of Milan and an ardent opponent of Arianism.
  5. ^ "At Ruthin, in Denbighshire, the festival of ST. MEUGAN."[13] Several churches in Wales and Cornwall are dedicated to him.
  6. ^ "At Città di Castello, St. Amantius, a priest distinguished for the gift of miracles."[12] He is the patron-saint of Città di Castello.
  7. ^ He is credited as the author of the Alphabet of Devotion.
  8. ^ "In the territory of Frascati, the blessed abbot Nilus, founder of the monastery of Crypta-Ferrata, a man of eminent sanctity."[12]
  9. ^ After a carefree youth in the south of Italy, he became a monk at the monastery of St Adrian in Calabria, where he later became abbot. In 981 the invading Saracens drove the monks to Vellelucio, where they lived on land given to them by the monastery of Montecassino. Shortly before his repose, Nilus designated that as the place where his monastery was to be definitively established. This monastery, of Grottaferrata, was for long faithful to Orthodoxy.

  11. ^ The skull of St. Andrew the Apostle, the martyred Patron Saint of Greece, was returned to the Greek Orthodox Church on September 26, 1964, as a gesture of Church unity by Pope Paul VI.[26]
    • "The skull of St. Andrew, the martyred Patron Saint of Greece, arrived by air in Greece last Saturday from Rome. It was returned to the Greek Orthodox Church as a gesture of Church unity by Pope Paul. A Greek Orthodox delegation flew to Rome the day before to accompany the relic to Patras. Cardinal Bea led a party of 15 cardinals accompanying the skull, which is encased in gold, and presented it to Bishop Constantine of Patras, where St. Andrew the Apostle was martyred. His skull was kept there until 1462, when it was removed to Rome to preserve it from the advancing Turks."[26]
  12. ^ On September 26, 1989, a copy of this famous icon arrived in Tbilisi, Georgia from the Iveron Monastery on mt. Athos. This copy had been painted by the monks on Mt. Athos as a symbol of love and gratitude to the Georgian people.
