You must have seen Saint Marina's icons at a church; what do you know about her?
Wouldn't you like to read her synaxarion to your child before you tuck it in for the night?
"Paterikon for Kids #55" is a concise, illustrated synaxarion of Saint Marina's life. You'll love it.
Have you noticed how it is not unusual to meet at a Greek church with ladies named after saints martyred in the first centuries of the Church?
Saints Kalliopi, Paraskevi, Marina, Dorothy, Barbara, Julitta, Thekla, Sophia, and Kyriake are some holy martyrs of the first centuries of the persecutions who wisely chose to give their lives rather than bow down to lifeless idols.
Did you know that Greeks traditionally dedicate their children to the patron saints of their parents? Therefore, you often will meet Greek grandchildren sharing their grandparents' names/patron saints. So, next time you meet a yiayia named Marina, she and her granddaughter are named after Holy Great Martyr Marina.
