I almost saved this page under Mary Skobtsova, and after much groaning I finally decided it better to put it under the name most people would search for. If one of the sysops believes, as I do, that saints should be known by their English names, feel free to switch it around and put a redirect in place for Maria Skobtsova. --Basil 21:59, 12 Jan 2005 (CST)

Generally, I think saints should be listed here by whatever English-speakers most often call them, not necessarily by Anglicized versions of the names.
One question I had was regarding the phrase "Our mother among the saints" -- for what type of saint is that? I'm familiar with the "father" version, which is for bishops. Female monastics such as St. Maria (according to the Antiochian Liturgikon, at any rate) would get "our venerable Mother N." --Rdr. Andrew 06:12, 13 Jan 2005 (CST)
