Feasts for August According to the Syrian Calendar
« on: July 29, 2003, 09:43:11 PM »
I am sorry that I didn't post any of the feasts for July; I forgot.  Apparently, so did everyone else.  :P  So, I am entering the feasts for August a couple of days early.  

+++

1st:  The Holy Maccabees, their mother Morth Shmuni, and their teacher Eleazar

And: The Dormition Fast begins (till the 15th)

6th:  The Feast of Booths (Mtale) -- the Transfiguration of Our Lord

12th:  Mor Ozazoel the Martyr

15th:  Shunoyo, the Assumption (Dormition) of the Mother of God; Intercession of the Virgin Mary for the Vines

19th:  Mor Laby the Disciple

24th:  Saint Matthias the Apostle

29th:  Beheading of Saint John the Baptist

Thank you Brother Mor, I can add it to my Greek, Russian, new/old Roman calendars.

I also have a NASCAR calendar but that's another story.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
