My saintly friends

  /  My saintly friends

Quick note: This page is a work in progress, and I'll be updating it with all the Saints images and descriptions very soon. Thank you so much for bearing with me!


Christ

God loves us so much, that he made us just like Him. That's why every day, we try and be less angry, sad and only think of ourselves, and more loving, joyful and think more of others. The saints did so as well!


Prayer: God, help us become more like you and learn from Christ and the saints. Amen.

Saint Mary

Saint Mary is the mother of God. That's why in this picture, she's sitting on a throne! 


Prayer: Saint Mary, the mother of God, please teach us how to be obedient to God like you are and help us. Amen. 

Saint Antony the Great

Saint Antony was a great monk from Egypt. Monks are people who decide to leave their cities and homes and live in the desert - where there is no one else but God! They live their lives talking to God. In this picture, a younger Saint Antony is praying to God while evil demons try to distract him and stop him. Some came as bears, scorpions and foxes to scare him from prayer. Instead of being scared, Saint Antony prayed to God for protection and so the demons didn't scare him at all! 


Prayer: Saint Antony, help us focus at times of prayer and help us be brave like you. 

Saint Arsenius

Saint Arsenius was another great monk. He used to be a teacher before that! In this picture, Saint Arsenius is sitting quietly in the desert. He knew that if he's talking and talking and talking all the time, he wouldn't be able to focus on prayer or listen to God! 


Prayer: Saint Arsenius, help us learn how to be silent and how to focus on prayer, so we can listen to God's word. 

Saint Athanasius

Saint Athanasius lived in a place called Alexandria. Some people said wrong things about what Christ is like, and tried to spread that wrong teaching in the church. Saint Athanasius made sure to say what's right and stand up to them. 


Prayer: Saint Athanasius, help us learn more about Christ like you did and help us have the courage to stand up to our faith.

Saint Basil the great

Saint basil was a bishop of a place called Caesarea. He learned a lot about Christ from his sister Saint Macrina and his brother Saint Gregory. He was a talented writer, as he wrote parts of the liturgy we pray today! And also instructed monks and inspired many to live in monasteries.


Prayer: Saint Basil, help us understand the liturgy you helped write and help us learn from our brothers or sisters like you learned from Saints Macrina and Gregory.

Saints cosmas and damian

Saints Cosmas and Damian were two twin brothers. They were both doctors who love to serve and care for others. They healed and treated everyone for nothing in return, and used this as a service to bring others to Christ. They were captured and killed as brave martyrs for the sake of Christ. 


Prayer: Saints Cosmas and Damian, help those who are sick find peace and healing. 

Saint ephrem the syrian

Saint Ephrem the Syrian was a great poet and writer. He wrote many hymns and songs of praise that teach us a lot about Christ.


Prayer: Saint Ephrem the Syrian, please help us love Christ as much as you did. So much that we write and sing beautiful hymns about Him! 

saint evagrius 

Evagrius was a monk in the Egyptian desert. He was great at thinking about Christ and writing about it. His writings helped many monks understand how we can work to be more like Christ. He wrote on topics like prayer and fasting, Actually, he was a friend of Saint Basil, who we colored a few pages back! 


Prayer: Saint Evagrius:, help us focus when we stand to pray.

Saint george

Saint George was a soldier in the Roman army. He was proud of being Christian and spoke of it bravely. The ruler captured him and tortured him in many painful ways to force him to leave Christianity. Saint George stood his ground and instead asked Christ for help and strength. Many believed after hearing of the tortures saint George had to bear.


Prayers: Saint George, give us bravery to live our live how Christ wants us to, even if people around us try to stop it.
