Does anyone know if the OT figure and author is considered a saint? I have found an icon of him but only one, and the OCA site has a feast of December 13, but no info about him, no troparia, etc.

I'm just not finding much and was curious if anyone had access to better sources or could offer any insight?

Thanks!

You sure it's December 13, and not 2nd Sunday before Christmas? Because that would be the good day to commemorate him. The collective troparion also would be used. As most Old Testament saints he won't have a separate feast.

He is very likely a saint, considering he was a prophet, but I was not able to find a service or troparion for him. In fact, he wasn't even on my church calendar for the day of his feast (actually Dec. 14th), so I guess he's not too popular. If you wanted to use a troparion for him, you could possibly use either a troparion from the general menaion (best) or use the Holy Forefathers troparion.

Troparion, In Tone II:

  Celebrating the memory * of Thy holy Prophet [name], * we pray Thee O Lord, * that by his intercessions * we may save our souls.

Prophet service from the general menaion:
