Saint Jude, the Apostle and Martyr

This Saint preached in many cities, including the island where he built a Church. He has also gone to the city of Edessa and healed Abgar, the King of Edessa, of his illness and baptized him.

Abba Moses the Black

Men have marveled at the spiritual fight of Abba Moses the Black for he seized the kingdom of heaven by force, even as the Holy Gospel said on Matthew (11, 12).  He was strong in body and a mighty man in all his deeds.  He ate, drank, killed, fornicated and no man could stand up before him.  It is said he could eat a whole sheep and drink a skinful of wine at a sitting.

“There has never been nor ever be another like you” (1 Kings 3:12)

No King has ever risen as wise as King Solomon in the History of earthly Kingdom. His Legacy was grand for His dynasty spread all over Egypt and Palestine. His wealth measured with Diamonds, Gold and Silvers.
