A mother of ten, several of which are canonized Saints!
Did you know she is one of the founders of Cenobitic Monasticism?
Saint Basil the Great, a son of this beautiful woman.
If you plan to give this or any other individual Paterikon book, click for the "Paterikon Purse" and the Greek Cookie! It makes a sweet little gift at no extra charge for you.
With each Paterikon book, choose a "Paterikon Purse" of your liking and either a fasting or non-fasting treat.
Love these little books to share with my little girls. St. Emmelia, intercede for us!
