St. Mina, who is called the blessed faithful, was martyred on the 15th of Hatour. His father, Eudoxius, was a native of the city of Nakiyos (Nikiu) and was its Governor. His brother was envious of him and he brought charges against him before the Emperor. The Emperor transferred him to Afrikia and appointed him Governor over it. The people were pleased with him because he was merciful and God-fearing.

His mother Euphemia had no children. One day she went to church on the feast of our Lady, the Virgin, the Mother of God, at Attribes. She saw the children in the church wearing their beautiful clothes with their parents. She heaved a sigh and wept before the icon of Our Lady St. Mary, entreating her to intercede for her before her beloved Son, in order that He would give her a son. A voice came from the icon saying, "Amen." She rejoiced in what she had heard and realized that the Lord had heard her prayers. When she returned to her home and told her

Jesus and the Samaritan Woman:

The story of the Samaritan Woman is one of my favorite stories in the Bible. It is a unique story, for the Lord meets this woman who is a Gentile in many ways, and carries on a conversation with her.

The question is, why a Samaritan?

Christmas is a new beginning celebrated annually. We recall the first creation when God made Adam and Eve, gave them existence, and began a good life with them. They enjoyed life with God and lived it in purity and beauty. But when sin entered into their lives, it shattered their strong relationship with God. Adam became fearful and hid himself, and Eve likewise. They were cast away from God’s presence. Man lived and multiplied in the land according to the commandment, and many nations and races spread all over the world. To Africa, Asia, and Europe went Sham, Ham, and Japheth.
