[warning: some bad language in this trailer]
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,

The Taliban already tried to kill her once. Think that stopped her? Think again.

Just wait and hear at 4:29 what she'll do if they come for her again — simply profound. Plus, I've never seen someone render Jon Stewart speechless. That's just cool.

Spoiler alert: All three maidens with joy met their martyr's end. They were beheaded.

Happy feast of st. martyrs Faith, Hope and Charity and their mother Sofia!

I have read in some places there was hierarchal liturgy but in our church it was only liturgy.
