Christos Anesti, Christ is Risen!I hope you have all had a joyous Easter.

My question has to do with St Honorius of Canterbury (+30/09/653).In Wikipedia, he is mentioned as venerated by the Orthodox Church as well as the RC Church and the Anglican Communion but he does not come up in any Orthodox Calendar I´ve checked on the Internet except in the ROCOR page of England. There is also Saint Honoré (16/05) who lived about the same period but I saw he is only venerated by the RC. I am more interested in the former and I would like to know whether he is indeed considered a saint by the Orthodox Church as well. I would like to be able to recommend him to an English friend who, although not that religious nor Orthodox, has always shown respect and interest towards our Church and specifically asked me whether there were any saints with names similar to hers. I thought that as a universal saint and one who lived in England at that, is more likely one she could feel familiar with and encouraged to investigate. I would appreciate any information you may be able to give me or suggestions on any other saints of a similar name.

He is of the time period that would be recognized by Orthodox as a Saint of the Orthodox period. I do not know any canonical Orthodox Church that has fully listed all of the pre-1054 Western Orthodox Saints at the present time. I believe that ROCOR and the Antiochian Western Rite Vicareate may be in the process of starting on this arduous task.

^Thank you very much for the suggestions. I am still rather particularly looking for my friend´s approximate Orthodox namesake and Saint Honorius is much closer. It was what she asked for and I believe she´ll feel more inclined to look him up as they have something more in common.

Have her discuss it with her Orthodox Pastor, he usually has to give the belssing for a name or patronal Saint.
