People as Liturgical Beings

Through the liturgical experience, we feel that, more than anything, people are liturgical beings. They were made to serve, to offer themselves and the whole world to God with gratitude, praise and worship, to unite with God, to be sanctified, to live, through this continual offering/sacrifice/service.

The Great Martyr Paraskevi (July 26)

Paraskevi was born in Rome of Christian parents and from her youth was instructed in the Faith of Christ. With great fervence, St. Paraskevi endeavored to fulfill all the commandments of God in her life. Believing strongly and living according to her faith, Paraskevi directed others on the path [of salvation] with the help of the True Faith and pious living.
