Myriam’s Story

Myriam’s Story


Earlier today I came across this video clip of a little girl named Myriam, an Iraqi Christian whose family had to flee their home near Mosul when ISIS took control of their town in mid 2014. They were refugees in Irbil, the autonomous region of Kurdistan, when this was recorded. Her faith and trust in God is a great witness for people of all ages.

Presvytera Vassi Haros

Presvytera Vassi Makris Haros is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Art, Architecture & Planning and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. She is the owner, designer and photographer of V’s Cardbox, a greeting card company featuring cards with an Orthodox voice. She is married to Fr. Athanasios C Haros, a priest in the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta.

After posting several of her fasting dinners on Facebook, hoping to encourage her friends to keep the fast, she received enough requests for recipes that she has started a blog titled In Service and Love. She strongly feels that experiencing the Orthodox Faith through the church’s cyclical calendar of feasts and fasts is a gift that is too often overlooked.
