St. John of Damasus:
OrthodoxWiki's Patron Saint
We've had some talk recently about a patron saint. I would like to go ahead and ask St. John of Damascus to fulfill this role for us. As a great apologist and compiler of Orthodox teaching, he offers an inspiring example for OrthodoxWiki. He is recognized as a teacher and revealed as a saint throughout the Orthodox world. Please join me in asking him to be present with us, and to guide and inspire our humble project by his prayers.
See the discussion page for some history.
- O champion of Orthodoxy, teacher of purity and of true worship, The enlightener of the universe and the adornment of the hierarchs: O all-wise father John, your teachings have gleamed with light upon all things. Intercede before Christ our God to save our souls! (Troparion)
