Hi all,

I see questions here regarding veneration of Saints such as St. Seraphim in the Catholic Church and have a similar question for the Orthodox here.  Pope St. Leo III, who was a staunch defender of the traditional Creed against the Carolingans, is venerated as a Saint in the Roman Catholic Church, though I have never seen him included on the Calender of the Orthodox Church. I, personally, have a great deal of admiration for him and for what he did for the Orthodox Faith, even in the face of Charlemagne (the two large shields erected in St. Peter's in Latin and Greek of the Creed sans filioque being a prime example). Does anyone know if he is included on any Liturgical Calendar in the Orthodox Church? I suspect he might be in the Western Rite.

The Roman Catholic and many Anglican churches mark November 10 as the feast day of Saint Leo (formerly April 11), while the Eastern Orthodox churches mark February 18 as his feast day.

I'm afraid so...no worries, mate!

Pope Leo III lived a couple of centuries later.

Pope Leo III was canonized by the Catholic Church in 1673, his feast day being June 12.  He is not listed on June 12 on the Western Orthodox calendar that I have.  Perhaps this is because he was canonized after the schism, even though he lived before the schism.

He seems like he should be sort of a bugaboo for the West, considering his fiercely strong stance towards protecting the Symbol of the Faith. For a good study of his role in the Carolingan controversy, read "Franks, Romans, Feudalism, and Doctrine" by Romanides or "God, History, and Dialectic" by Farrell. I believe that most Easterns would find him a champion for the Orthodox Faith.

He's probably not a "bugaboo for the West" because even though he opposed putting the filioque in the Creed, he believed that it was a true doctrine.

But, one must imagine how he might have been remembered when those silver shields were taken down in St. Peter's, no?  Wink
