The Countdown Has begun- Philo and the Patience SuperHoly
I was drawn to Saint Philopatir when I discovered a book about his miracles. I was a teenager then and reading about Saints was not high on my list of priorities.

How do you introduce Saints to today's children? One of the challenges of introducing Coptic Saints to a "modern" generation resides in the Iconography. Coptic Icons are an honoured and cherished tradition of the Coptic faith. Because the icon contains many symbols, they are able to transmit the essence of the Saint's life as well as salient features of their journey. But, at times, they can be slightly intimidating for a young audience who is now accustomed to animation as the norm. Enter: Our Heavenly Friends. This is a fantastic Sunday School Program created by Laura Philopateer from http://www.copticdadandmom.com/. which...
How many times are we in a situation where we have to choose between Church and an activity on Sunday morning? How many times do we choose Church?
How many times do we follow the crowd instead of the Creed?
I LOVE this reminder: fishers with a net and not hunters with bullets. Loving rather than judging. Serving rather than condemning. Welcoming rather than burdening. "Come, follow Me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19 Have a great day and God bless!
