Pentecost - Sunday, June 23, 2013
The holy, glorious and right-victorious Martyrs Boris and Gleb were the sons of the great Prince Vladimir, the baptizer of the Russian people. They became known as Passion-bearers, since they did not resist evil with violence. Boris and his brother Gleb are commemorated together on July 24 by the Church. They received the crown of martyrdom in the year 1015.
