Honey Savior or Macovei is the very first Savior
Every year in August, Orthodox people celebrate the three great holidays of the Savior. The very word "Savior" is associated with Jesus Christ, who is called the Savior. It is to him that the Orthodox Church dedicates these holidays. Jesus gave each of us the opportunity to sweeten our souls from the evil forces to take care of it before the fall of life. And now, during the Saviors, we think of Him, trying to think for a moment: how do we live? Each Feast of the Savior on the church calendar has a different, so to speak, official name.
