Sunday of Orthodoxy

Joyous feast! The Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy was established in the Byzantine Rite to commemorate the final restoration of the holy icons in the East Roman Empire. It has since taken on a wider meaning to commemorate the triumph of Orthodoxy over all the heresies that have assailed the Faith since the preaching of the Apostles.

Today's feast is also the third anniversary of the repose of Metropolitan Laurus (Skurla) of New York of thrice blessed memory. More on his life can be found here. Вечная память! May his memory be eternal!

A beautiful sermon on today's feast by Fr. Alexander Schmemann can be found here.
