St. Jonah

Today marks the Feast Day of St. Jonah of Manchuria. It also marks the Tenth Anniversary of his Glorification.

More information on St. Jonah can be found here including: a narrative of his life, the service to St. Jonah (note the acrostic in the canon at matins), and a sermon of St. Jonah.

More information on St. Jonah (in Russian) can be found here.

Today is also the Patronal Feast Day for my parish. : )

It was truly a blessing to be able to attend the Vigil and Divine Liturgy served in commemoration of this remarkable modern day Saint.
