Our goal is to reach 100% participation, so please give any amount you can! Details should have been sent to you by the Eparchy, but if you have not received anything you can contribute anyway by writing “Eparchial Appel” on the memo line of a check to the parish, or donate online at https://ephx.org/st-marys-eparchial-appeal/

Byzantine Saint Stories for Little Ones: Theodora & Didymus – Feast Day May 27

Theodora was a young woman who wanted more than anything to be a nun.  At that time, it was illegal to be a nun, and even to be a Christian.  Trying to get her to deny her faith, the authorities forced her to go to an evil place where women were abused by men.  There was a competition among many sinful men to hurt her first.  One good man, a young soldier named Didymus, thought of a way to save her.  He pretended that he was going to hurt her, but when the other men weren’t looking, he switched clothes with her and so allowed her to walk out disguised as him.  When Didymus was found wearing her clothes, and the evil men realized they had been deceived, they wanted to kill him.  Before they could, Theodora found him, thanked him, and tried to convince him to let her die in his place.  He refused, wanting to protect her, and give his life as Christ did.  She wanted the same.  They both ended up dying martyrs, rejoicing that they could give their lives together as brother and sister in Christ.   

(The original version of their story can be found in the parish email or at abbamoses.com)

 

“The one who saves his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will obtain it.” The saints show us the meaning of Christ’s words, when they obtained life by giving their lives for the sake of Christ. Serving as a monk, nun, priest, deacon or in minor orders is one way to lose one’s life. This may be your calling to grow in Christ.
