One of the things that the Coptic Church is known for is her theological educational tradition, and we know we have our succession of deans alongside with the patriarchs, and many have overlapped, with deans being bishops of Alexandria. One of the most important deans that all Orthodox Christians admire, even though he is not a saint due to alleged heresies, is Origen, and I am quite saddened at the very least that such an important figure does not even have a record of the exact date of his departure, let alone his birth. At the same time, we also have St. Clement of Alexandria and St. Didymus the Blind (or even Origen's father, at least, St. Leonides, though not a dean, was martyred for the faith), who we call saints, but their commemorations is no where to be found in the Synexarium, at least from my search. In addition with the recent canonization of St. Habib Girgis, it really got me thinking. I would really wish, as my personal desire, that we at least perhaps have a day in the year set aside as a commemoration for all the deans of the school of Alexandria, and maybe all of Orthodoxy, to commemorate for their education, their loyalty to the Church, and the bringing up of many spiritual children who would become future servants of the Lord, including deacons, priests, and bishops.
I don't know, what do you guys think?
