Lives of the Saints
As Orthodox, we honor the lives of many saints commemorated during the Liturgical year with icons pertaining to that saint or feastday.
An online library of icons, saints lives, and liturgical commemorations for every day of the year are available can be found by clicking on the link above.
The Orthodox calendar describes and dictates the rhythm of the life of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Associated with each date are passages of Holy Scripture, Saints and events for commemoration, and many times special rules for fasting or feasting that correspond to the day of the week or time of year in relationship to the major feast days.
