Dormition and Assumption of the Theotokos (Old Calendar)

Today is August 15 on the Old Calendar, the unrevised Julian Calendar. Those Byzantine Orthodox Churches which follow it today celebrate the Dormition of the Theotokos. From Fr. Jonathan:

"Sleep and Rise, Fair Maiden, Daughter of Your Son"

You running out of ideas about what to post, Father? :D

Uhm, not exactly. I have several ideas percolating in the back of my mind. What has been missing has been the time to develop them into semi-coherent posts.

In the meantime, I can always link to excellent posts written by others, such as Fr. Jonathan and Fr. Stephen.
