St. Anna, the Grandmother of Jesus

I love this Icon of St. Anna from Kykkos Monastery in Cyprus. It shows St. Anna's Daughter, the Virgin Mary, and Her Grandson, the Baby Jesus, symbolically sitting in her lap.

Do you gossip about them - telling others what they've done? Do you seek revenge? Do you hate them? Do you fall into despair? Now, let's imagine that the people who do these horrible things are Christians. Not…

Whatever Happened to St. Lazarus?

St. Lazarus Church, Larnaca, Cyprus Like most American Christian children, I grew up reading the Bible. I learned the stories well, and loved them. I knew the characters by name, and new each of their stories, the same way secular children can name and tell you all about their favorite movie characters, or their favorite sports characters.
