Saint Sophia and her daughters agape, helpis and pistis. This holy woman encouraged her daughters to the youngest one (9 years young) to keep the faith in the face of terrible tortures. Mutilation, burning, boiling, stretching and stabbing. They endured it all. Even though she encouraged them to keep the faith, she was so heartbroken after the three were martyred, she asked her daughters to intercede and take her soul up as well. And so, she joined her daughters.
Be sure to grab a copy of my graphic novel “Anastasis: the Harrowing of Hades”. If you’ve read it, leave a quick review on Amazon and tell your friends and parish about it! 🙂
