Saturday of Souls
Saturday of Souls is a day set aside for the commemoration of the dead within the liturgical year of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Saturday is a traditional day of prayer for the dead, because Christ lay dead in the Tomb on Saturday.

These days are devoted to prayer for departed relatives and others among the faithful who would not be commemorated specifically as saints. The Divine Liturgy Services on these days have special hymns added to them to commemorate the departed. There is often a Memorial Service either after the Divine Liturgy on Saturday morning, for which Koliva is prepared and placed on the Panikhida table. After the Service, the priest blesses the Koliva. It is then eaten as a memorial by all present.
