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

"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

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.

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.
