Memorial Day

Every day is Memorial Day in the Orthodox Church. Almost every day at least one holy person is commemorated, and almost every day we ask at least one holy person “who has fallen asleep” to pray for us. See here. A wonderful and well-done and very informative software program can bring up similar data on your own computer without having to go online each day.

Americans often invoke the sacrifice of their soldiers in religious and political discourse, almost as if they were in some way still with us. Orthodox know that they are!
