OVERTHROW THE TYRANNY OF MONTHS

The liturgical life of the Orthodox Church ebbs and flows right over the boundaries of 30-day months. Using a calendar governed by months limits your ability to see a whole Church season at once. This calendar’s spreads are governed by the feasts and fasts that structure the Orthodox year, which results in seven sections of varying length.

CALENDAR FEATURES

  • Designed to hang on the wall, open it measures 12" x 24" (30.5 x 61 cm)

  • Seven spreads ranging in length from six to ten weeks

  • Original images from the island and monasteries of Patmos

  • Spiritual wisdom from St Amphilochios

  • Spacious squares for personal planning 

  • Light shading on traditional fast days 

  • Ornamentation indicating major feast days

  • US holidays and observances

  • Commemoration of over 100 beloved saints, including newly canonized saints

  • Significant feast days from the alternate calendar (Old or New), indicated in italics

Scripture readings, rubrics, and fasting details are not included. 

This calendar features images taken during Beauty First Films production
for a short documentary about St Amphilochios Makris of Patmos.

These calendars are beautiful and have lots of good information for the daily lives of Orthodox Christians. I love the way it’s broken up into liturgical seasons instead of months. I have purchased 5 of them now over the last two years! They make great gifts.

This is the first time that a physical calendar has also become a devotional. It helps me understand the historical roots of my faith. - Anna, Roman Catholic

 

It is just the calendar I needed but didn't know I wanted! I just can't even heart it enough. - Kh. Nikki

I've enjoyed having this year's calendar in my work office, and, as a new convert to the Orthodox Church, it's really helped me get into the rhythm of the liturgical year.
