There are many saints revered in both the Roman and Orthodox world. These saints are a treasure trove of information about the first thousand years, often recalling the earliest days when Christian martyrs gave their all for their faith.
One source of information on these saints is at the Wikipedia page “List of popes” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_popes ) where one can find the Popes of Rome that are also revered as saints in Eastern Christianity.
Some saints are even more special in that that their feast days are also the same in both churches. As the historically apostolic churches pray in unity of time for these saint’s intercessions, we could also add special prayers for the unity of the Faith and the reconciliation of the churches.
Future posts will include information about these saints.
