What are the special days of commemoration of the dead?

For deceased loved ones you need to pray constantly, it is most convenient to remember them when you read the morning or evening rules. But it is even better if it asks the Church about the rest of souls who have departed to another world during the liturgy, especially at the liturgy, where a bloodless sacrifice is offered for all the living and departed. That is why it is so important to submit notes with the names of those who died at the liturgy and memorial service.

 

Unfortunately, many of those who call themselves Orthodox are only occasionally in the church. Such nominal Christians often ask whichMemorial Daythe most important? Say, that's when we will choose the time and come to remember their loved ones.

 

You can answer them shortly - any day of the year in which you pray for the repose of the souls of your loved ones, the most important for them, for at this moment they receive great comfort and relief. So no need to wait for an opportunity in order to remember the deceased. They always need our prayers.

In many churches and in almost all monasteries, services are held almost daily.And they are always commemorated by all "from the age of" the dead Orthodox Christians. It is possible to order commemoration for long periods - for 40 days (forty days), for six months, for a year. In some monasteries they take notes even for eternal commemoration (that is, as long as the monastery exists).

 

But in general, a special church day of commemoration of the departed is any Saturday of the year (with rare exceptions), when the requiem service is obligatory performed in all the churches.

 

In addition, the six Sabbaths by the church statute are allocated separately. These are the so-called ecumenical parental sabbaths, dedicated to the heightened commemoration of all the departed Orthodox Christians.

 

We list them:

 

- Saturday is meat-empty - eight days before the beginning of Lent;

 

- Saturdays on the second, third and fourth weeks of Great Lent;

 

- Holy Trinity Saturday - on the eve of the feast of the Holy Trinity;

 

- Dimitriev Saturday - a special commemoration of the fallen soldiers, which takes place on the Saturday before November 8, the day of the memory of the Great Martyr Dimitri Solunsky.

 

In addition, all the dead soldiers and civilians must be commemorated on May 9, the Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War.

 

And finally, perhaps the most famous day of commemoration of the departed is Radonitsa, when for the first time after Easter it is allowed to commemorate the departed in the church. This happens on Tuesday of the second week after Easter.

 

On the eve of these days, the funeral parastasis are served, and on the Sabbath after the liturgy - the memorial services.

 

These are all church days of commemoration of the dead. And besides this, every believer must pray fervently for loved ones on the third, ninth, fortieth days and on the anniversaries of their deaths, as well as on birthdays and name days.
