From the Menaion - 12 March


On 12 March, we commemorate our venerable father Theophane, the Confessor, monk of Sigria, whose body rests in Samothrace.

Theophane can now be the protector of the faithful who render honor to his peaceful end; for on the twelfth, he took leave of this passing life and entered into eternal blessedness.

On the same day, we commemorate our venerable father Gregory, Pope of Rome, the author of the "Dialogues".

From the heart of this life, the holy Pope Gregory attains the choir of angels and eternal glory.

By their holy prayers, O our God, have pity on us and save us. Amen.
