The Veneration of Saints in the Orthodox Church
A general introduction to the Orthodox tradition of veneration
The Blessed Seraphim Hermitage
Saint John Maximovitch Eastern Orthodox Web Page
Our church is the first church in the world named after the newly canonized saint, John Maximovitch, forming and naming our church after him in 1991. At the time we called our church Blessed John the Wonderworker because St. John was not yet canonized. When the canonization happened in 1994, we changed the name to St. John the Wonderworker.
Some Saints and Feasts of the Orthodox Christian Church
"As the prophets beheld, as the Apostles have taught, as the Church has received, as the Teachers have dogmatised, as the Universe has agreed, as Grace has shown forth, as Truth has revealed, as falsehood has been dissolved, as Wisdom has presented, as Christ awarded, thus we declare; thus we assert, thus we preach Christ our true God, and honour His Saints in words, in writings, in thoughts, in sacrifices, in Churches, in Holy Icons; on the one hand worshiping and reverencing Christ as God and Lord; and on the other hand honouring as true servants of the same Lord of all and accordingly offering them veneration. "This is the Faith of the Apostles, this is the Faith of the Fathers, this is the Faith of the Orthodox, this is the Faith which has established the Universe!"
