St. Macrina

St. Macrina

St Macrina was St Basil the Great's grandmother She helped take care of St Basil when he was a little boy and she was one of his favorite people St Basil always talked about all the great things that his grandmother did for him especially teaching him to love God even when he was very small Macrina and her husband loved God very much During the time that they were alive the Emperor of Rome did not like people who loved God because he wanted everyone to love him the best So Macrina and her husband had to hide in the forest to escape the Roman soldiers who were looking for them They were afraid but they never stopped believing in God They ate what grew and lived in the forest and lived like this for 7 years

St. Macrina, pray that we will never stop loving God, no matter what other people say or do.

Jesus Christ
