Saints
10 Gregory of Nyssa

St. Emilia is the mother of both St. Basil and St. Gregory of Nyssa who are commemorated this month. Of her ten children, five are commemorated as saints.  That’s amazing.  On this day, let us reflect on the one that is called, “mother of saints”, and ask for her intercessions.  Lord have mercy.
17 Anthony the Great
BBC has a wonderful series: Extreme Pilgrim.  In this episode we see the ascetic Christian tradition that Saint Anthony founded.  This documentary is worth watching, it is deeply spiritual and thought provoking.   

Activities 

Home Blessing, Vasilopita, and Cross Diving at the YMCA!
