Today we honour the memory of the Holy Prophet Elias.

The Holy Church is praising this great Saint of God in festive hymns and calls him the "Earthly Angel", "the second forerunner of the coming of Christ", "the foundation of the prophets».

Christians around the world honour him as the greatest of the prophets, with whom few of those who live on earth can compare. After almost three thousand years, God's Prophet Elias is an example of faithfulness, zeal and courage in the confession of true faith.

Congratulations, dear Orthodox Christians!
