Monday, July 22: Feast Day of St. Magdalene

Thursday, July 25: Feast Day of St. Anna

Friday, July 26: Feast Day of St. Paraskevi

 Saint Paraskevi...who was from a village near Rome, was born to pious parents, Agathon and Politia. Since she was born on a Friday, she was given the name “Paraskevi”, because that is how that day is pronounced in Greek, and it means the day of "preparation".

From childhood she was instructed in the sacred letters and devoted herself to the study of the divine scriptures, while leading a monastic life and guiding many to the faith of Christ. During the reign of the emperor Antoninus Pius, she was apprehended because she was a Christian and was urged to worship the idols, but she answered with the words of Jeremias: "Let the gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, perish from the earth and from under the heavens" (Jer. 10:11). Because of this she endured exceedingly painful torments and was beheaded in the year 140. The faithful pray to her for the healing of eye ailments.
