About the Calendar
Since 1996, the Daily Lives, Miracles, and Wisdom of the Saints & Fasting Calendar has been a fixture in many Orthodox homes in the United States and around the world.
The calendar follows the Revised Julian Calendar (New Calendar).
The print calendar is a 365-page, spiral-bound book (5-1/2" x 8-1/2"). It can lie flat on your table, desk, or home altar. The eBook can be purchased directly from Amazon, iTunes, or Barnes & Noble to download directly to your favorite reading device. Links are provided under the Digital Editions tab above.
Each day features the life of a Saint, an insightful Orthodox teaching, a list of the day's commemorations, Scripture readings, fasting or feasting guide, and major feasts.
The lives of the saints include Greek, Russian, Georgian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Serbian, American, Celtic, and others.
The teachings of the holy fathers and mothers of the Church help us with our struggle to live a life of faith in the modern world.
