Russian Orthodox Commission on Canonizing Saints Meets in Moscow

The Synodal Commission on the Canonization of Saints of the Russian Orthodox Church met today at the Danilov Monastery in Moscow to discuss the Commission's ongoing work to glorify the New Martyrs and Confessors of the Soviet Yoke and issues that have developed in the Commission's cooperative work with local diocesan commissions on the glorification of saints. (In the Russian Orthodox Church dioceses are blessed to glorify saints from their regions, who are then only blessed for veneration by the faithful of the particular diocese that glorified them.) More (in Russian) here.
