Today the Orthodox Church celebrates Radonitsa, the “Day of Rejoicing”, on which memorial services for the dead are served and which immediately follows the services for Pascha and Bright Week.

The Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia has decreed that a pannikhida be served today in all parishes in remembrance of Metropolitan Laurus who reposed on the Feast of the Triumph of Orthodoxy.

A reflection on Metropolitan Laurus’ life and service to the Church by Protopriest Peter Perekrestov (composed on Great and Holy Thursday which also marked the 40th day of the Metropolitan’s repose) can be read here.
