Saint Romanos–Honoring a Patron

Saint Romanos the Melodist, a true Byzantine saint, is the patron of choirs and those hard-working choristers, and his story is layered with sorrow, humility, and joy; if you haven’t heard of him I’m going to share a children’s version with you in about a year. That story is Sweet Song.

His feast day is October 1st–today– and humble muffins offered yesterday at coffee hour seemed appropriate.

Spend this day singing, if you can, in honor of the many many melodies he has brought to us!
