On this day we remember how, by the command of King Herod Antipus, St. John, the Forerunner of the Lord, the greatest born of woman, for having rebuked the king for his lawless cohabitation with his brother’s wife, was beheaded at the demand of the daughter of the latter, who pleased King Herod by her dancing at a banquet. On the day of this feast a strict fast is appointed, as a sign of lamentation and of denunciation of the gluttony of Herod at the banquet. On this day we also commemorate all Orthodox warriors killed on the field of battle, who, like St. John, suffered for the truth. Read more here.
