A woman within the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese of Suceava and Rădăuți was recognized last month for the heroic deed of birthing and raising 19 children.

Aneta Artemie was honored with the eparchial order of St. John the New of Suceava, granted by His Eminence Archbishop Calinic. The award was initiated by the faithful of the Church of Sts. Constantine and Helen in Giurgești, Suceava Country, where Aneta’s husband is the cantor, reports the Basilica News Agency.

The honoring of the mother of 19 was part of the Month for Life, celebrated annually in March in Romania and Moldova, and took place specifically during a workshop for mothers in the parish community.

OrthoChristian reported earlier this week that thousands joined the March for Life in Bucharest.
