Orthodox Western Saints for Today

Pre-Schism Saints of the Orthodox Roman Patriarchate*
9th January (27th December O.S.):

  • FABIOLA, a Roman patrician who married, divorced, and then married again, causing scandal. After the death of her second husband, she repented and devoted her wealth to the care of the sick in a hospital which she established. She also founded a hostel for pilgrims in Rome and was greatly venerated. St. Fabiola reposed in 399.

* - Prior to the Schism the Patriarchate of Rome was Orthodox and fully in communion with the Orthodox Church. As Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco +1966 said "The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable Liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."
