Agia Paraskevi - Saint Friday
A beautiful icon to hang in your home or present as a gift. Agia Paraskevi is known as a saint to help with the healing of eye ailments and healer of the blind. Her saint day is celebrated on July 26th.
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 heaven and the earth perish from off the earth" (Jer. 10:11). Because of this she endured exceedingly painful torments.
