"If you suffer for your faith, then be grateful to God, for He is offering you the crown of martyrdom." --Blessed Theodore Romzha
Mother Theodora celebrates the feast of Blessed Theodore Romzha as her feast day today for the first time since her life profession (Nov. 20, 2011)--the day she received the name Mother Theodora. Blessed Theodore is a Byzantine Catholic bishop of the Eparchy of Mukachevo (Ukraine) who was martyred for his faith in 1947.
This beautiful icon was commissioned for Mother by Subdeacon Andrew Summerson, a seminarian from our eparchy and good friend of ours who is studying in Rome. The icon was hand painted in Mukachevo and contains a relic of Bl. Theodore!
God grant you many blessed years, Mother! We love you!
Happy feast day, Mother!ReplyDelete
