Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers

commemoration_of_saints

...take note of their days on which they depart [the confessors who have died in prison], that we may celebrate their commemoration among the memorials of the martyrs, although Tertullus, our most faithful and devoted brother, who, in addition to the other solicitude and care which he shows to the brethren in all service of labor, is not wanting besides in that respect in any care of their bodies, has written, and does write and intimate to me the days, in which our blessed brethren in prison pass by the gate of a glorious death to their immortality; and there are celebrated here by us oblations and sacrifices for their commemorations, which things, with the Lord's protection, we shall soon celebrate with you. St Cyprian of Carthage - Epistle number 36
