| Every year September 30 to the new style Orthodox Christians celebrate Memorial Day Holy Martyrs Faith, Hope and Charity and their mother Sophia. In the 2nd century, in the reign of the Emperor Hadrian (117-138) in Rome she lived a pious widow, Sofia (Sofia means wisdom). She had three daughters Faith, Hope and Love, who wore the names of the three main Christian virtues. Being a deeply religious Christian, Sofia brought up daughters in the love of God, and teaching is not attached to worldly goods. The rumor of this family affiliation to Christianity came to the Emperor, and he wanted to see for myself and three sisters raised by their mother. All four appeared before the emperor and fearlessly confessed their faith in Christ, risen from the dead and giving eternal life to all who believe in Him. |
Happy angel us: Vera, Luba, Nadia and Sofia !
