Holy Martyr Jacinthus (Hyacinth) Commemorated July 3. It is all because of holiness..
- Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church has posted a new item, 'Holy Martyr Jacinthus--
(Hyacinth) Commemorated July 3. It is all because of holiness..'
I read the lives of the Saints to inspire me and to show what I am not and what
I should be. Who cannot be inspired by the super-human bravery of a TWELVE YEAR
When I read the lives of the Saints, I often have a ?question? in my mind ? how
could a person do such a thing ? have such bravery, endurance, humility,
chastity, etc? The answer is always the same ? holiness. Or more properly, the
ABSOLUTE, UNCOMPROMISING pursuit of holiness.
Would I have the courage to pray secretly when I knew being discovered would
mean a terrible (in earthly terms) death? Yes, if I had faith and was holy....
