St. Philaret the Merciful
Constantinople, Asia Minor (762)
He was a wealthy landed gentleman who lived in the countryside near Constantinople during the reign of the Empress Irene. God had given him great wealth and a large family with which to enjoy his later years in contentment. A true lover of God, he gave without hesitation to all the poor and needy who came to him, and freely offered hospitality to every traveler passing through his lands. But his fortunes changed dramatically, and after a series of disasters he was reduced to poverty, with only a small piece of land, a pair of oxen, a donkey, a horse, a cow and a calf and a few beehives to sustain himself and his family. Without complaint, he took up the life of a simple farmer, laboring to support his family with his few means.

News and Events
God Is With Us
During the Advent season, I like to read the Gospel accounts of the birth and infancy of Jesus as presented by St. Luke and St. Matthew. I also enjoy reading what the early Christian writers said about these Gospels. St. Matthew says the birth of Jesus was the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy from Isaiah “Look! the virgin is with child and will give birth to a son whom they will call Emmanuel”.
