Question 82.

I have a question for you that came up this morning how many unknown saints are venerated in the Orthodox Church? 

 

Answer to Question 82.

 

Ha ha I laughed because if saints are unknown then we don't know anything about them and so we cannot venerate or celebrate them in the usual way, but we celebrate them collectively on the Sunday of All Saints.

Let me rephrase then the lesser known ones

 

Answer

 

There are literally thousands. Just go through my directory of saints on my website and you will get an idea, and even though it's probably the largest directory you will find it is still far from complete.
