Random Orthodox Saint

And today's Random Orthodox Saint is:



Louis the Pious, Holy Roman Emperor (20 June 840)

Here are some articles on him:

Biography from Bookrag

Unfortunately, I was not able to find any liturgical propers for him or a vita or something further detailing his sanctity on the Internet. Not that I'm surprised. Most Western Orthodox Saints (and Eastern ones, for that matter) don't get more than a few lines of mention anywhere--in print or on the Web. It's too bad.

Rejoice, O Virgin Mother of God, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, for thou hast born the Savior of our souls.
