Feast, Saints, and A Thought for the Day

Raphael (Hawaweeny), Bishop of Brooklyn (November 1)

Rejoice, O Father Raphael, adornment of the holy Church! Thou art champion of the True Faith, seeker of the lost, consolation of the oppressed, father to orphans and friend of the poor, peacemaker and good shepherd, joy of all the Orthodox, son of Antioch, boast of America. Intercede with Christ God for us and for all who honor thee. (Apolytikion in Tone 3)

Saints of the Day

Apostles Stachios, Apellos, Amplias, Urban, Aristoboulos and Narcissos of the Seventy; Martyr Epimachos of Alexandria; Newmartyr Nicholas of Chios

Thought for the Day

"He who does not know the truth cannot truly have faith; for by nature knowledge precedes faith. What is said in Scripture is said not solely for us to understand, but also for us to act upon." -- St. Hesychios the Priest
