The word Saint in Greek means Holy, and the Church has been blessed throughout the ages with an abundance of Holies. The Saints are shining examples of the Life in Christ and the Power of the Holy Spirit. They perpetuate the ministry of Christ by their lives, prayers, and self-sacrifice.
Jesus taught the Apostles not only by words, but by actions. Christianity is a faith of deeds before words. Spirituality is a state of being, not a proclamation. Jesus Himself said, “He that believeth on me, the works that I shall do he do also, and greater works than these shall he do.’ The Orthodox faith is rich with saints, sacred traditions, miracles and mystical depth, making Orthodoxy alive and real.
