January 14 - Saint Macrina

 

Macrina the Elder was the grandmother of St. Basil the Great. It seems that she was the one who transmitted the faith to Basil. Macrina and her husband had to flee their home during a religious persecution and hid in the forest for seven years. Later, everything they owned was taken from them. In the midst of all the adversity, St. Macrina and her husband kept the faith.

Do you feel your faith shaken before any difficulty? In what moments have you felt doubts? How do you face them?
