21 Baba
(The Twenty-First Day of the Blessed Month of Babah)

 

The Commemoration of the Relocation of the Body of Lazarus

On this day also we celebrate the commemoration of the relocation of the body of Lazarus,whom our Lord raised from the dead. It was relocated by one of the Christian Emperors to  Constantinople. When he heard that the body was on the island of Cyprus, he sent some of the trusted bishops to the island where they found the holy body laid in a sarcophagus buried under ground.

    The inscription on the coffin read, "This is the body of Lazarus, the friend of the Lord Christ, whom He raised from the dead, after he had been buried for four days." They rejoiced at it and carried it to the city of Constantinople. The priests went out and received the body with great honor and veneration, and with prayers and incense. They laid it in a sanctuary until they built a church for it and then relocated the body to the church where they celebrated a holy day for him.

His intercession be for us. Amen.
