I’m so excited! I’m Greek Orthodox, second generation, fluent, former teacher & professional singer. I sing St. Nejtarios’ gorgeous ‘O Virgin Pure’ in church. How I wish I could have sung it in the movie! I pray that all of mankind know the Truth of Truths which Jesus taught, the apostles preached, and we kept- Orthodoxy! It’s the only doctrine of our Lord! Looking forward and thank you for choosing to present this unusual film to the world! The lives of saints are first martyrs & examples of what our love & faith should be ! It enriches us to read their journeys! 727-331-7187 Colleen A. Pikos
