    In Rome in the time of the Emperor Hadrian (from 117-138 a.d.), there lived a virtuous Christian widow named Sophia (Wisdom), with her three daughters: Pistis (Faith), Elpis (Hope), and Agape (Love).  This God-pleasing mother instructed her children in Christian virtue from their birth.  When the children were twelve, ten, and nine respectively, the whole family was brought before the Emperor for refusing to sacrifice to the Roman idols.  Although tender in years, the three sisters remained steadfast in their confession of Christ, and suffered beatings, stabbings, and burning, but remained unharmed until they were at last beheaded.

    These blessed daughters of the Heavenly Father awaited their martyrdom as if it were their wedding and they were going to meet their Bridegroom Christ and to live with Him forever.  St. Sophia took her daughters’ bodies and buried them outside of Rome, and after three days of mourning at their grave, joined them in the Heavenly Kingdom.  This contemporary icon, of the young martyrs who gave up the glories of this life to receive a hundredfold in Heaven and their most-wise mother, is from Greece.

    St. Tikhon (a.d. 1865-1925) was born in a village near Pskov, Russia. He was very bright and entered the Theological Academy in St. Petersburg when just 19. He was very knowledgeable and was jokingly referred to by his classmates as “the patriarch.” Tonsured a monk at 26, he was then made the Bishop of Liublin, Poland when just 32, but was transferred to America within a year to become the Bishop of the Aleutians and Alaska in 1898. St. Tikhon worked hard for nine years to overcome ethnic and language barriers to make the Faith accessible to all. At that time all of the various ethnic groups, whether Greek, Serbian, Rou-manian, Albanian, Carpatho-Russian, Antiochian, or Russian, were under the omophor of the bishops of the Russian Diocese, who served each according to its needs and in its own language and customs. St. Tikhon also reached out to converts and blessed English translations of the Divine Services and Sacraments. He was called back to Russia in 1907, and elected the Patriarch in 1917 after the fall of the Russian monarchy. Terribly persecuted by the Communists, he remained faithful until he died of exhaustion in a.d. 1925. Sizes are approximate

    St. Nicholas, the chosen of God, was in his own lifetime a great wonder-worker of miracles, and this continues to this day.  He was born in Patara, later entering into the Monastery of New Zion founded by his uncle Nicholas, who was also the bishop of Patara.     He wanted to live a life of solitude and silence, but heard a Heavenly voice calling him, “Nicholas, for your ascetic labor, work among the people if you desire a crown from Me.”  Shortly after this, he was chosen by revelation to be the Bishop of Myra in Lycia of Asia Minor, now in modern day Turkey.

    Generous with his goods and life, fearless before earthly powers in matters of righteousness, zealous for the faith, and truthful, St. Nicholas was a lover of justice, and on two occasions defended three innocent men condemned to death.  He appeared even while alive in dreams and in person to those who called on him in need, and is known to be “quick to help.”  He is the patron of travelers, those at sea, students, and even pawnbrokers.  Loved throughout the world, may he also hear our humble prayers!  St. Nicholas died after a short illness on December 6, 343.

    St. Phanourios’ icon was discovered about a.d. 1500 by a band of Arabs pillaging the ruins of an old abandoned church on the Island of Rhodes.  Christians hiding nearby saw that they had found an old icon which appeared fresh and new, and when the Arabs left without the icon, they could read the name of Phanourios on the icon, and it showed 12 scenes of the saint’s martyrdom.

    From this icon a local devotion soon spread, and this blessed man was venerated as a saint whose devotion had long been lost but now was found, and revealed as a great help to the Faithful in their prayers.  He is especially known to help find what was lost, either spiritually or materially, revealing what directions should be taken in any event, and for physical healing.  From the icon we can see that St. Phanourios was brought before Roman authorities, and tortured, beaten with rocks, clubs, and sticks, raked with iron, burned with torches, and had his bones crushed.   There is a tradition that St. Phanourios asks the Faithful to always pray for his unrepentant mother when praying to him, and this practice is very widespread.  May God have mercy on his mother and also on us!

    These two Great Apostles of Our Lord Jesus Christ are depicted here in a brotherly embrace.  Both were transformed from ordinary men to servants of the Most High God, and became living icons of the Lord they worshiped and loved exceedingly.  They are both considered chief among the Apostles, and have a major fasting period that precedes their dual commemoration on June 29th each year.  They are great miracle-workers.

    Simon bar-Jonah was a fisherman who was transformed by Christ when He called him from his earthly fisher’s nets to Heavenly ones, later called Peter for the rock of his confession of Christ as the living Son of God, given to him by revelation.  He led the early Church and preached at Pentecost, converting thousands.  Saul was a Pharisee who led the persecution by the Jews of the early Church.  He was converted by a vision of Christ on the road to Damascus, which blinded him to earthly sight, but gave him Divine wisdom.  He was  healed through St. Ananias’ prayers, who baptized him.  In a.d. 64, the Emperor Nero in Rome condemned St. Peter to death by crucifixion, and St. Paul by beheading.

    St. Nikon was born in Byzantine Pontus Polemoniacus in the tenth century.   As a young man he went to live a very strict ascetic life for twelve years in a monastery called Chrysopetro, or “Golden Stone,” on the borders of Pontus and Paphlagonia.  His abbot sent him out to preach in Anatolia, in Asia Minor.  When Crete was freed of the Arab conquerors by Nikephoros Phocas in a.d. 961, St. Nikon traveled there to return former Christians who had been converted to Islam back to their faith in the Lord Who bought them with His Life.  He began his sermons to them with the word “repent” and this St. Nikon’s epithet has come down to us.

    St. Nikon preached for some time in Epidauros, Athens, Euboea, Thebes, Corinth, and finally spent many years in the Peloponnese, particularly in Sparta, where even today he is known as a patron saint of that city, averting a plague by his prayers.  He ended his course of preaching repentance on the mainland of Greece in Lakonia, but died in a monastery in the Peloponnese, full of years and faith on November 26, 998.   He was, and is still, a great miracle-worker, touching the hearts of many.

    St. Panteleimon is one of the great healing Saints of the Church.   He studied medicine as a young man, and was instructed and baptized into Christ by the holy priest Hermolaus.  After baptism, St. Panteleimon began to heal others not just by earthly medicine, but also by Divine Providence and Mercy.  Jealous doctors denounced him to the Emperor Maximian as a Christian, before whom St. Panteleimon freely confessed his faith, even healing a paralytic before the whole court of the Emperor.

    Unmoved by this, in a.d. 305 Maximian handed St. Panteleimon and his mentor St. Hermolaus over to torture with two other Christians, Hermippus and Hermocrates.  The latter were beheaded, but the sword of the executioner broke over St. Panteleimon’s neck when it was his turn while the saint prayed out loud.  When he was done praying, and he gave the executioner his permission, St. Panteleimon went to the Lord joyously giving his head and life to Christ.  The name Panteleimon in Greek means “all-merciful,” which he has proved himself over these many centuries by his great love, first to Christ, then to many of the faithful.
