Name day of Roman. Dates named after the Orthodox calendar

Spiritual development

Namedays are an important holiday for everyoneOrthodox believer. It is similar to the birthday, because it is associated with baptism - a spiritual birth into eternal life according to the teaching of the church. When a person passes this rite, they call him by some name, necessarily in honor of this or that saint. From this moment on, the newly baptized has in the person of this saint a divine heavenly patron with whom he will be spiritually connected throughout his life. Therefore, an unbaptized person, in general, does not have the right to celebrate his name day, because he has his name without reference to the personality of the heavenly patron.

For those who are initiated in the Epiphanyfonts, the name and patron are chosen by the parents (if they baptize the baby), or the person himself. The day in which the church calendar honors the memory of the chosen saint, and becomes the day of the name-day. In the event that someone was baptized as a child, but there were no records and memories of which of the saints was chosen as the patron of the person being baptized, the saint is defined as follows: the saints are taken and calculated, the day of the memory of one of the saints with the same name closest to him birthday. He is the patron. In the same way, when a person at the time of baptism chooses a name, but does not know which of the saints to prefer. In all other cases, the patron can be chosen irrespective of the date of birth, based only on intuition and a sense of special spiritual connection and sympathy. Calendar it can be any day.
